I installed one in Sybil, my '72 TR6. I used a FACET from JCWhitney and a
fine filter and mounting kit from Pegasus Racing.

No vapour lock for this boy!

Actually, the best place (at least on a TR6) is on the frame rail right next
to the fuel tank outlet. THe reasoning is that they push petter than they
That said, I put mine in the engine compartment and have had zero problems
with it. It *does* make wiring it to the oil pressure cutoff switch much
