Great project! Those rust pics are worse than a zombie movie. I can't wait to hear the success story.
I'd agree, but you should be able to key up and then turn the key off to kill the pump. No reason to let it run even 2 secondsI'm not the mechanic Ray is, but I think you shouldn't run that pump dry. The 'cycle for 2 seconds' may not stop running if it doesn't get fuel pressure... and the pump uses fuel as its cooling and lubrication.
