Title: Ft-8900R Fuel Pump Noise
Post by: N4EHT on March 19, 2004, 11:00:47 PM
I have an FT-8900R in my Buick Skylark 1994 and I have a ton of noise on the radio when the car is on. We have traced it to around the gas tank so we think it is coming from the fuel pump.

I need to know if anyone who might know of some type a filter I could use and where to put it that might help me get rid of some of this noise. Thanks for any help.

You need to order some split beads from Surplus Sales or Palomar Engineers. Both have web sites.

Mix 43 is the correct mix, and I'd get the ones with a 1/2" ID. Buy at least three. Sometimes one works, but not often. They need to be installed as close to the actual pump as possible.
