I knew from the start that the wires on this fuel pump was going to be a problem. I have been go carting the build some and the wires come disconnected.

Any body else have this issue? I know some made comment when I went to go buy it orginally.

My solution is to put a cover around it. Protect it too from whatever I drive through too.

I looked on the interwebs and saw a cover designed for heat but might work.

(Super hard to take a pic) I have nothing special or unique so I believe people will know what I am talking about anyway.

Where did you mount it? Mine is mounted to a rectangular piece of alloy attached to the backside of the right 4" chassis tube. Have had no issues with it getting hit or wires coming loose in 10K+ miles.

Yes sounds like where I have it. Maybe I will put a L bracket of some sort to hold the connectors in place.

Are the connection points on the pump threaded studs? Put a nut on the studs and then put the boots back over the connection . . .

Mine are bare studs with no boot or cover. Easy solution is just double nut it.

As to the other suggestion agree wire ties are a good plan.

FWIW I grounded the pump with a heavy wire back to the 4" chassis tube & the hot lead is part of the RF harness.

The wires are enclosed in small diameter plastic corrugated looms that go over the raw stud ends with wire ties securing them.

Guess I forgot to mention that if your wire ends are just a slip on female "socket" that slides over the studs, you'll need to cut those ends off and replace them with a proper size "ring" connector . . . then double nut the connections and you'll be home free from then on.
