    regulator

    I was told by a company that I just got a regulator from to not mount regulator, just plumb in line, up close to carb

    he said vibrations when you mount a regulator will kill them
    agree or disagree ?

    my set up is single carb, 8an line 600 hp motor, no return line

    I mounted mine on the old car and never had a problem. Im trying to find a good spot right now to mount it on the new car but havent found the right spot yet.
    Whos regulator did you get? If its a BG 4 port, place a lock washer under the mounting bracket bolts if you use it as the supplied bolts are too long and doesnt squish the diaphram down tight. It will leak. I speak from experiance on this one. I called BG last time and they told me they never seen that before and now 4 years later I buy a new one and see the same thing.

    Mine is mounted on the passenger fenderwell, when running gas with 2 #6 lines going too the carb. I have a duel setup with a 10 gal tank in the trunk and a 3 gal. for alcohol mounted left front for the injection.

    I belive NHRA sais no fuel line can be within 2 inches of the firewall, for what its worth.
