    Alcohol with Aeromotive A1000 Electric pump

    Anyone useing an Electric pump with alchol?.. Im looking to pump from the fuel cell in the rear- #10 line supply and # 8 return.
    Its a 642 hp sbc carb will be APD. Im running a complete aeromotive a1000 system now which can do alcohol. On gas its rated at 1200hp.
    Doing some math... with SBC 642 on methenol should have a BSFC no worse then 1.3 as calculating should be somewhere around 139g per hr.
    The A1000 pumps 900 lbs of fuel per hr at 8psi... sounds like it should be plenty.
    Mounting a belt driven pump is an option but considerable fab work needed and alot more time involved (=missed race)
    Any info would be appreciated.

    thanks
    Keith

    Will work fine, we ran a BG400 dead headed in our SBC Nova from the back. 702hp Never gave us a problem whatsoever. We later switched to Ron's injection, tank up front and didn't pick up even a hundreth.

    APD CARB/AEROMOTIVE PUMP

    Just thought i would report how the APD with the Aeromotive electric pump worked out.. Everything went incredibly well. APD carb was uneventful only idle and slight secondary float adjustment needed.
    In good air 10.59 2 weeks prior on gas with a 1.046 sixty foot 127 mph to 10.30(Alcohol) with a 1.40 60 ft with 129.4 mph.(with the worst air of the season)
    Fuel system had 7lbs thru the lights .. which is good for this small block.. it drops from 8.5lbs at idle to 7.0 lbs.
    My consitantcy was 10.305 10.308 10.311 10.309 .. these are the tighest numbers i have run.. i went 3 rounds .. i fell asleep in round 4 so oh well.
    Thanks for the advice!!

    Keith
