    Arrow Can I use my facet red top fuel pump to run my standard carb ?

    As above.
    If so what shall I drop the fuel pressure to ?
    I'm fed up for waiting for a part for my twin 40's so I wanna stick the old carb and manifold back on.

    Cheers,

    Paul

    yes you can all you need to do is set the pressure to suit the carbs although i found the regulator is already at it near enough.

    red top? that not a bit much??

    the silver top competition is more than enough as it's rated for engines capable of 220bhp max and i had to still run it through a regulator and turn the pressure down a bit

    the points based facet ones are ok but not that reliable. managed to kill 2 of them in 9 months. now got the latest type which is solid state based. difference visually is that it has tartan type sticker on it instead of just plain. not killed it yet either

    contaminated fuel apprently. but i had put on a new tank and had washed it out with some petrol before fitting and a new filter before the pump as well and that was rinsed through too. pump sticks and need a wee to get it going
