Default Fuel sending unit with return line

I purchased a fuel sending unit with a return line from Eklers. After installing it I found that it leaks fuel from where the return line is soldered into the flange. Donna at Elkers was very helpful and is sending out a prepaid return label so that I can return it. My question is ... Has anyone else had this issue? As far as I can find they are the only ones that make and sell this part. If it is a know problem then I will go another route for the return line instead of risking doing the job three times. Thanks

I bought this unit last winter but have not installed it yet, I'm hoping your problem is a "one of" and not a problem with all of them. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

I am hoping it was a one time problem as well... On a positive note the car runs awesome with the new Sniper fuel injection unit.. Just not happy about the puddle of fuel under the car while it is sitting in the garage..

Just wondering...Since you say it was working well, are you feeding a frame mounted external pump with this set up?

Yes... I purchased the installation kit that comes with everything needed for install.. (except for the fuel sending unit with a return line) The kit is a good deal because if you add up all of the parts included and purchase them individually it would be much more expensive. The kit includes the external fuel pump that is much quieter than my old Holley electric fuel pump That I ran with carburetor.

Would you mind posting pictures of the pump mounting and installation?

I have my Sniper kit ready and just finished replacing the dual-plane manifold with a single-plane on my ZZ4....

Note: A noticeable difference in low end torq loss with the single plane manifold..... I don't really care since it is my driver and not a race car....

Curious.... How low were you able turn down the idle?I heard that is a problem.

Thanks in advance!

A cheap easy way of adding a return line is to buy the Moroso kit that puts it in your filler tube. No welding needed, just a saw and a screwdriver.

If you have a link to the kit, that would be greatly appreciated. I'm in the market as all I have yet is the sending unit. Thanks.

Ouch! 2K is a bit spendy for this cowboy!

I thought maybe the pump, regulator and fittings came in a kit that was a bit cheaper than buying separately. I'll be feeding a 6L LS engine and will be using the same pump setup. Thanks for the post though.
