Can the inertia switch hander the amperage of my Edelbrick electric fuel pump? Or should I run it all the way to up to disconnect the fuel-pump relay?

As allway, Thank You!

I think it depends on the switch. As I recall early FOX the inertia switch controlled the relay, later ones were in the path to the pump.

Sorry but I don't have dates, but mine - an 89 donor - is on the relay ckt.

All the Fox Inertia switches that I had would not handle the current of 255 lph intank pump. Some will run the pump but pop after a while. Either use it to ground the input signal for FP relay or run another relay inline in the back.

The 94/95 switch is after the relay and before to the pump.

I run a 255l and a t rex through the 95’ switch. 2 years and 6000 mile no problems.

Sounds like I should just trigger the relay. I do like the idea of switching the ground for the relay...interisting idea. Thanks guys!
