What sort of connections do these use???? I take it its screw in unions and not jubilee clips????
Using it on a Nova 1.6 with 40's where do you think it's best to mount it? I know they can be mounted anywhere in the line, but would you go closer to the carbs (better pressure?) or closer to the tank( draw fuel easier?) bearing in mind though they supply more than enough pressure for a carb'd engine!!!
Car will be used on track alot!?
So it may be an idea to run the fuel lines through the car!!? ready for future!? What are the MOT regs regarding this???? and anyone who has done it before did you drill a new hole or find an existing one!?
i dont have any problems on my mot with it, but then again i've got a friendly mot tester, i had to drill a couple of hole's for mine (astra gte), just make sure you run the hose's though some rubber grommets or they might rub though... messy
I run a facet red top to feed my swirl pot.
Connections are basically whatever you want as you buy the ends to srew into the pump. Most people just use the straight or 90 degree ones that 8mm hose pushes on to.
Dry prime (vertical lift) is 0.60meters for the red top.
Mounting as close as possible to tank is best, but if it's not lifting 60cm you can mount it further away.
Mount it vertically with teh byonet fitting downwards otherwise the internal filter doesn't do it's job.
Alternitly mount horizontal but have a really good (fine) pre-filter.
With carbs you don't need any real presurre - only volume.
You should really use a low pressure fuel pressure regulator too otherwise you can upset the carbs. They only cost about £15 or £20.
Make sure you use a think bit of wore for the pump's live (with a good current feed), and make sure the earth is good.
I suggest you also get the rubber mounting kit as this will cut down on annoying in car ticking as well as being kinder to the pump.
