need elec fuel pump for RV

OK my brother in law just got himself a 1982, 32 footer. the previous owners had to replace one of the pumps. they could not find the right one so just put something up there. as long as your in town its fine as soon as you hit the highway, she will start stuttering from low fuel. so we need a fuel pump that will give us enough fuel. he don't need a super race type pump. just something Strong enough to give us the fuel we need that also will not need a regulator. it has a 454

The standard carter electric pumps always worked for me. However, chances are to get a pump to feed the monster, you`ll be left with no choice but to run a regulator. The carter street pump says it runs 5 psi max, but when I got mine it ran 9 psi so I had to get a regulator. Even so I`m sure you already know but it don`t hurt to mention mount the pump close to the tank as possible.

Tee off at the carb inlet and run a line up to the cowl where you will mount a 0-15 mechanical fuel pressure gauge that you can monitor through the windshield. Just mount the gauge however, with tie wraps and duct tape. It's only temporary until you get the pressure dialed in. 5 psi max for an AFB type carb, 6 psi max for a Holley. Until you do this, you'll just be guessing and howling at the moon.

like i said i have not seen it. it is stock so im sure its a qjet. it does have anther pump that works fine for the second tank. the PO told him when it was replaced they could not find the corect pump even at the dealership.
we are trying to stay under a 100 bucks.
i have just thought about just sending the fuel to the tank that works. its only going to be driven once every 2 to 3 months to get to the next job sight.

what would yall do if it were yours. just to make it run right
