I have just replaced the electric fuel pump on my GMC 1992 Sonoma. Everything was going smoothly- tank is in position, all hoses hooked up, Ground wire attached for static electricity when filling the tank. The fuel pump and sending wire are plugged in. I can't remember the location for the grounding wire for the pump. It uses a self-tapping 1/4 inch screw- has a 13 mm head. The wire has two wires swedged into the terminal -eye that the bolt goes through. I have crawled around looking for a threaded hole mainly on the frame, or welded cross member that is close by.
The ground strap that comes from the filler tube is attached to one of the bed cross pieces(channels) that stiffen the bed. It uses a much smaller screw. The fuel pump ground isn't long enough, and has too large of hole in the eye terminal to attach there. The ground wire is the same length and made like the old one was. Feel free to address me for what I am ! I know that. I realize I can drill and tap a new hole, but was trying to avoid that.
have the same problem?
