Has anyone done this or thought about doing this??? I had a thought about
providing some sort of basic security on my Bronco. I was thinking that
when I go to wire my pusher fuel pump I would route it through an
inconspicuous switch on my dash. That way I could turn it on and off when I
wanted to. In the off position the pump would not turn on and therefore the
engine would stall after a short while. So if someone was able to hot wire
it they hopefully would not get very far. I know that running a switch
creates another point of failure and may not be too wise. But would it
provide the security I think it would to be worth it?

Let me know what you think...

Thanks,
Todd

Security/Fuel cutoff Question

The pusher is definitely not necessary, I pulled mine as a trail fix ayear
ago , and never replaced it. One these days I'll probably wished I did.

Security/Fuel cutoff Question

Post by Captain Air Time » Fri Dec 17, 2004 8:00 pm

Not saying its not a help. I’ve set up 4 SEFI swaps without them, and no problems tho. What I’m saying is that it will 99.9% sure start up and drive away with the pusher pump ‘killed’. That’s not going to be very much of a deterrent.  So it dies on them 150 miles down the road when the fuel level gets low and the HP has a hard time drawing. A little too late, IMO.

Yea, Someday you will wish you did, or you might if you are like me and load up your tent trailer, then throw your canoe on top of the roll bar and head out with the kids and the dog in 100 degrees.  As soon as I got to the steep part of the mountain I couldn't go.  It was actually vapor locking.  I found that my pusher pump had unknowingly gone out and the HP pump couldn't handle it.  I got turned around and headed back down and as soon as the load came off it was fine.  After an hour and 200.00 worth of pumps later I had both swapped out in the Auto zone parking lot and drove right back over the same mountain no problem.
