Information from a fellow friendly American who happens to be a Mustang enthusiast. I know it's tempting. I removed the SVO gas tank, external fuel pump and filter. In it's place I put a 1995 Mustang gas tank, Fuel filter bracket with new 1995 model year fuel filter, in tank fuel pump and fuel sending unit. I modified all the fuel lines to work with the new setup. The one piece of information I need is the 'black braided' wire that needs to go to a chassis ground. I've got the connector at the tank which is a 4-prong. Then I have a two wire connection where the fuel pump was powered.

I suppose that meets the requirements.

I dont know about the wiring but I do know the sending unit will not work. You must use a sending unit from a fuel injected 84-86 to work properly.

After drudging through people's theories and uneducated guesses, I concluded that the two wires going to the sending unit needed to be switched around. As soon as I get the filler neck back from being refinished (rust was inside the tube) I'll button it up and see what the result is. I will then come back to this forum and update the masses as to my findings.

Switching the wires will not work. The resistance on the board is different. There is an thread on Four eyed pride one how to make a tempo one work.

Thank you for the info. I thought that the resistance on the fuel card would be the only issue. Luckily I just picked up a 1993 Ford Tempo for $290 at auction yesterday. Your information is timely and appreciated.
