    Question about fuel lines going to fuel pump. s13

    There are two rubber fuel lines going to my fuel pump. I forgot to mark which rubber pipe came off which outlet. Have a rough idea but is there potential to cause damage if they are the wrong way round about when firing up ?

    Decided to go with my gut feeling and the car started and seems to be fine apart from my fuel gauge doesn't seem to be working

    If it runs then it's fine, if you had them the wrong way round it wont run

    Fuel gauge could be you forgot to plug it back in ?

    I have plugged it back in mate. I think I know the problem. I had my tank off and sealed the inside. What was left form sealing the tank , I used on the craddle which holds the pump. Although I did not coat the little gauge on the craddle,I did give it a chemical wash. Wonder if that could be the problem.
    Either that or the 10 litres I put in the tank is not registering. Will fully fill the tank tommorrow and see what happens.
