thank you for the reply, i'm with you about real life so i have to put my junk on the road before, but... what will happen if engine will run approx 5000 for seconds? i'm concern about that, revving it up is relatively safe, i guess it wouldn't the same thing when the load is on it.
Pump M55 is supposed to be the stock replacement for the SB chevy and i would stay far away from any high volume or pressure pump with stock clearance engine like mine, i think it's gonna be just too much load on cam and distributor gears.
My pump works pretty good until 5000 rpm and i can't understand the why, befoe to get crazy with this and that i want to know if anybody has experienced issue like mine, i wan't to make sure if is just a Melling pump problem before.
