chevy fuel pump

I have a 1962 willis truck with a 327 chevy engine , with a holley 650 on it , someone put an electric pump and tried to adjust pressure with a water valve .what I would like to know is there a chevy fuel pump made upside down to install onto its original position ? the reason is that the engine sits so far down in frame that original position is not possible

you could put a fuel pressure regulator at the carb for an easy fix. jegs has a holley low pressure regulator for carbs
using a valve would only work for one flow setting at any other flow it would over pressure the carb or starve the carb

How many times I've gotten returns on those olds pumps when they get installed like a chevy!!!

I really don't recall anything that will adapt, with an inverted diaphram, to a sbc.

What is in the way? The name of this forum is hotrodders. That's what we do. We eliminate stuff that's in the way, or bridge around it.

I'd go for the proper adjustable fuel pressure regulator. If the fuel pump you have works, I'd just do that. Regulators are pretty cheap.
