There is a hole in the boot floor on the right side where the tank and
pump wires pass. It is inside the rib.
If it were not raining, blowing, and sleeting, I would go out and get
the exact spot.

The hole is near the tank, the wire is strapped to the fuel pipe coming
from the tank to the pump.

The pipe runs along the rail on the floor pan. It has 2 hair pin looking
clips to keep it up inside that rail. In the back it bends up to the
pump. Across the front, it clips to the frame rail awhere it bends to
the left side, mounts to the left motor mount and up to the carbs.
