    Alky Pump! Electric or Belt Dr.???

    This is the second part to the other topic I just posted. I would like to run an electric pump/regulator for the alky carb.. Can you do that? I've always ran injection systems w/ by-pass & returns, etc,etc. would like to avoid that if possible.

    Thank's Guy's,
    Kris

    Lots do it with electric fuel pumps and have great luck. I use belt drives only, simple, rare to wear out and now power going to them. Several brands of elec pumps will work, avoid bg.

    Alky Pump! Electric or Belt Dr.???

    Honestly I was just going to get one of those pumps & regulators from jegs for like a $125.00 & of coarse a filter. Though I want to try it to see if it is something I would like, however it's hard to get away from injection, but I going to give it a shot.

    see I dont know much about the pump jegs is offering for that price. It looks like one of those pumps on e-bay that they stuck their sticker on. But they have one listed there for methanol & one for gas. Same part # for the regulator to use w/ either.

    You usually get what you pay for. I'd get a Magna Fuel pump with a Magna Fuel regulator. especially if your going to run alcohol.

    Yes

    I do agree make sure when looking you look for one that will work with both gas and alky if not you will regret it later on
