No. Look again. Pic is looking up from the bottom. Weird view. Pump is bolted to the subframe next to the anti-lock manifold.
Your filter is in a different place inside the fenderwell.

So I got all the tubing hooked up and put plain water in the reservoir to test and set the pump pressure.....

Tank leaked like a sieve Water dripping from the bottom seam and tank level probe connection. I'm not impressed. Tank is out now drying for repairs tomorrow.

What would you suggest I use to seal it up for a long lasting repair that won't leak

plastic weld . They sell them at the auto parts store and its 5 bucks. Just make sure you get the one rated for engine bay temps.

Thanks Oldman but I contacted Snow and they are sending me a replacement.
I'm doing a quick fix while I wait using epoxy so I can test the pump.
It will never see engine bay temps because it is inside my cool box that is almost ambient temp.

I hate wiring Two black boxes (8 wires), a solenoid valve (2 wires), level indicator (2 wires), run light (2 wires), level light (2 wires), lighted switch (3 wires) and pump (2 wires).... plus main power to fuse panel and ground.
One wire a night, I should be done by spring.
