Thought I would show my CQ font fuel pressure arrangement.... IMG_8100.jpg  This is how I move vehicles around when they have bad fuel pumps.  Is pretty easy to get 10psi, by the time you get 20psi you are tired of pumping, and I have not got it to 30psi with the hand pump.
 It's a nice clean font, I really should find a junker to use.

Ingenious. Has a classy look too.   Obvoiusly being careful as the majority of FI cars are running at 60PSI when the pump is on and that is over the norm for a fount. Are you also using it to run injection cleaner?? . . We did similar with a converted fire extinguisher.

The 10" pump is likely the correct one for the lamp. Those tanks are built to take it so you can pump 'til your hand hurts. If you use a lamp pump they are self limiting by design so you can't get more than about 50psi in there anyway and those tanks are designed for a works test of 120psi. More pressureequals more light so you just add enough to give you the desired effect. ::Neil::

Seconds to the CQ being built for lots of pressure. I (and Mister Wilson) have seen Amish lamps using them. They put air in with a compressor; Leacock founts bulge when they fill them and CQs don't.

I've also seen plenty of the Leacock founts bulged from being over pressurized. I've never seen a Coleman that way either. That's a pretty clever tool though. If it looks stupid but it works, it isn't stupid.

My first such device was an old Freon tank, we would pull a vacuum on it and then suck fuel into it.
@salukispeed I haven't cleaned injectors in years, but you are right in your thinking, this would work well for that.

"when they have bad fuel pumps."
As usual I'm missing something here, Keith is using the CQ when vehicles have bad fuel pumps. I would assume bad means no pressure back into the CQ...else why the need for the CQ??🤔

@Tigerfans2 "Bad" means no fuel to injectors. Put fuel and some pressure in the CQ font and hook it into the fuel rail, and the engine runs off the fuel provided.

I got that but Saluki warned of excessive pressure To the fount From the FI pump. Are you not inserting the CQ line where the pump would be inserted?

The gas filled and pressurized fount replaces the fuel source that the bad pump would normally supply.   often by attaching at the pressure service port, And the pump pressure concern would easily be eliminated with removal of the fuse or relay if needed. . But it turns out that good solid  founts are able to work at even the higher pressure and survive. I likely spoke a bit too soon with my concern.

Wouldn't your setup basically push the fuel toward the injectors AND back toward the pump/tank?  So once the fuel remaining in the rail was used, the vehicle would stop running again?
Quote
Majicwrench
Certainly it pushes fuel back toward the pump/tank. Pump has a check valve, so fuel can't flow into tank. Vehicle will run as long as the fuel in font last and is under pressure.

Gotcha.  I thought you were just using the fount for (air) pressure, and not as a fuel source, too.
