how would it be to run a 10 gauge wire from the battery or alternator (which was recommended by tre and racetronix) and choke it down to a 14 gauge wire going into the bulkhead
I used Racetronix Sy/Ty Hotwire kit and told them the connectors to match my R10 so it just plugged in.  On the Fuel sending side I paired the main wire to the 2 bulk wires running to the pump.  Been this way since March of 2014.

This is the pump with the 2 14g wires merged

Thanks bud! I ended up just modifying my sending unit and ran a straight through wire sealer thing with 12 gauge wire. 26 bucks for the unit. We made our own harness and such.

So I my fuel pumps will be wired to the back of my alternator. The factory fuse box (from the van) and the electric fans will be wired to my battery. And ideas on how to add more connections to a side post battery?
