Fuel pump

Post by andrew »

Hi, using a Facet fuel pump on a CU motor, standard Solex twin carbs.  Do I need a pressure regulator?  If so, which one?

Depends on which pump pressure it is? 1.5-4 psi no need, 4-6psi you need a reg.

Think it might be 4-6, but I have a 1.5-4 as well.  Enough for the CU?  Next question: I'm missing the rubber collar that sits between the air filter box and the engine tinware, warm air intake I presume?  Know anyone who can supply?

Which Malpassi regulator would you recommend?

Fit the 1.5-4psi pump then, it pumps the same volume of fuel as the higher pressure pump just at lower pressure.
