Vn engine fitted in cf Bedford
Hi. So I am busy putting this vn commodore engine in my Bedford cf camper and I am starting to think about fuel. Petrol. Can anyone recommend a fuel pump that I can fit external to my tank and how best to hook it up. Cheers

They come standard on the VL 6 cylinder

vs commodore
Depends on your old Bedford tank, set up, how deep and the fitting section, probably easier just to remove your tank and fit a commodore tank, might need to make up brackets.

So what are the thoughts about fitting an external fuel pump? Or does it need to be an internal one?

Go for the external pump as it will be the easiest. You won't fit a Commodore tank anywhere under a Bedford.

Have a look on YouTube "The Skid Factory". They put a Barra turbo in a Bedford last year.
Not sure what episode, they did use the original tank and installed an internal pump.

Using the vn pump that is standard to the vn engine your using is a no brainer and a good start.

Fuel system/tank/fuel pump/filter/pressure regulator type/s and what to use would depend on whether your going EFI or carby ???, you didn’t say which ???

I don't see any problem with an external pump, provided it has good priming characteristics ie can suck fuel well or is mounted below the tank's minimum fuel level. On a Triumph TR6 I have Carter Universal priming pump feeding a high pressure Bosch 058. A lot of Bosch pumps are hopeless at priming.
