This is the fuel pump housing and sump can or sometimes called a swirl pot in certain types of racing.
Basically, I'll have two other 4 gallon tanks mounted on the front (inside) of the passenger compartment. Each tank will be on one side of the vehicle, keeping the weight balance in check. It will also allow me to move some of the weight further forward in my quest to get closer to a 50/50 front to rear weight balance.
The two tanks will gravity feed the swirl pot and the tanks will be connected to each other, keeping the fuel level equalized. Each tank is foam filled. This should keep the fuel calm and always surrounding the pump assembly.
It wouldn't be a true Southern build without some aluminum tread plate.
A lot of our races end up in some type of mud. My original plan was 1/8" aluminum with grip tape on it. The treadplate just seemed to make more sense for my feet keeping traction in the wet, mudy conditions.
HREW test cage was removed and the 4130 cage was built.
Harness bar and harness clips were installed.
Really, really like the new ratcheting harnesses from PRP. These also came from www.SXSPerformance.com. At first I wasn't too sure about the ratchet, but I can't believe how much better everything feels with just a few clicks of the ratchet. Definitely the most comfortable harnesses I have ever used.
