All depends what it is regulated at. Says on the package it is designed to replace oem pumps. It should work.

If it is over 3 PSI your carb will be running over.  1-2 PSI is the spec you need.

Says 1 to 4, but how does it regulate? These things shut down or bypass or what when not needing flow?

I think you will be OK Grump.  1-4 PSI should do the trick, just make sure you connect it to a 12 volt source.  If it proves to be a bit much then just lower the voltage or make the fuel line longer.

That looks just like the one I have.  I don't think it regulates because it runs continuously.

I suspect it's just a vane pump and when the pressure gets high enough (presumably 4psi) it just leaks around the vane.

Put pump in tonight. Tried starting on fluid first, only ran when sprayed. After pump was in, starts right up now. I mounted it in bottom of hood and lines to it easy and still opens no issues. I ran juice off coil feed. Only on when key on, why not? Vibes a bit at first, but don't hear once running. Drove around some and don't see leaks. Originall still in block, need a plate for that. Anyone here sell, w/gasket?

Thanks for the feedback GG.  Glad you got it working and hopefully it will last a very long time.

I think you will be happy with the electric pump.  Carb is always full at start up.
