I'm getting a tank with the walbro 400 in it and so I was wondering if I'm going to have to open it up and check the connector..
I know. I got f*cking stupid. I have the walbro, I don't know why I had aem stuck in my head. The walbro 400 e85 pump.

Sorry for the confusion.

Here, look at the blue rubber around the wires under the top of the surge tank. You can see how it looks torn. That blue rubber actually deteriorated in my fuel system and caused me tons of headache.



I would HIGHLY recommend either removing that as it's completely unnecessary, or at minimum putting a fuel filter on the outlet, but you might still have issues with it clogging the return.

Also notice, my green rubber seal looked like that when I opened the tank. I have no clue what happened there. I stuffed it back in properly.

ah ok, thanks for the clarification. I'm going to put a filter on the return to tank so I think I'll be okay. Appreciate your threads and info.

If you put filter at the end that wouldn't save you from injectors becoming clogged...

I would recommend filter just after the surge tank connected to the fuel feed line.

Me too.

Yup, I think a filter headed to the fuel rail is the most crucial just for peace of mind.

That said, if you can find a good cheap filter to put headed to the return I think that would help save you from some headache. At the least you wouldn't have to rip apart the whole fuel pump assembly to clean out that filter if these pieces do make it into the return.

The rubber bits were all decently large, so that's why it doesn't have to be the most expensive filter headed to the return. Here's a pick of some of them. This is representative of the size of all the bits I eventually removed. I'd say in total I found between 10 and 15 pieces around this size:
