fuel pump

pressure on that carb needs to be in the 4 psi area.. 6# and u need a regulator. check your local auto part store and for one on the shelf.. i'm using a pep boys (u most likely don't have them) and it puts out just over 4# and no reg.

I agree with Bill But you must consider volume don't get a 4 LB. little pump for a 4 cylinder!

pump

u will only need a single fuel line, no return needed. if i read your post right u are running it in a RV ???? if so your not looking at hi volume. if looking at your local auto parts store there are many brand names.

There are cheep electric pumps like the Mr. gasket for 4 cylinders I'm just saying don't use those pumps with a V8 they have very low volume!

Unless Delawarebill thinks they are good pumps for V8s

No disrespect but either you read my post wrong or I did yours Bill LOL
