Electric fuel pump into hj

Hi, does anyone know the best way to modify a fuel tank for a hj sedan to run an electric fuel pump or the best way to set them up?
Ive read alot of forums and dr terry on here gave a solution with putting in a tank out of a vp/vr commy and get spout welded in, but that was 6yrs ago.
Theres also a place over east that can modify an original tank for 600.
Cheers in advance

Are you going to run a EFI engine?
I haven’t got a pic on my set up for my fuel system sorry
But this is sort of the same system in my brother car

Dr Terry’s comment below is the easiest and cheaper option
BUT mind you, I did my conversion back in the year on my Qld blue plate 10/04/2000
Yes 19 years ago

price up someone making you a tank that will take the efi fuel pump and sender. Fuel is that corrosive if you burn the plating off the inside of the tank while welding it, the fuel will eat thru it quickly and leak. Will vk vl external pump supply enough fuel and find some where to sneak a return line in from the top and soldier around it. personally I don't even want the fuel line in the passenger compartment. If the mob that will fit mod your tank for $600 will last is the worry a custom tank will probably start at twice that.

most of the time I fix things properly, it ends up taking longer when I dodgie it because I have to do it again anyway.

As I suggested years ago the cheapest & most effective set-up is to fit a VN-VS tank using the original mount straps. You just need some threaded rod to replace the original bolts at the front.

Get a radiator guy to solder (not weld) the filler neck & other fittings so it fits the same as the HJ tank.

There are many advantages to this set-up.

1. The factory pump will be supply more than enough fuel to run most engines unless you're running a turbo with E85.
2. The pump will be almost silent, unlike many external set-ups.
3. You don't need an extra external surge tank, the factory has this in-built.
4. Much cheaper than any other equivalent.
