Default carb return system ?

I am going to do the return line on my car when I route all the fuel lines. My question is were do I get a fuel line that has and entrance for the fuel and a return or exit for the fuel? I see fuel lines that go to both on a double pumper and then I see fuel logs but neither has a second out for a return line, just the initial entrance. Were can I find one and what are you running if you are using a return line to your fuel cell or tank?

Thanks!!

The return line will come off the regulator.

Default Fuel Return

If I understand your question correctly, you need a fuel log for the return regulator to screw in the back side (return side) of the fuel log.

Check the Summit catalog for your applications. BG - BLP - MOROSO - HOLLEY, etc. all have fuel logs to attach your return regulator.

Use -8 fuel line for the return. You will need a fuel gauge (Autometer is the most accurate) to determine your positive line pressure and adjust the fuel return regulator for recommended pressures.

If you have questions, give Bo Laws or Barry Grant or Holley a call. Their tech service will work you through the details.

Please note that the return regulator is different than the common fuel regulator and that alcohol applications are different than racing fuel regulators in their materials - so be careful to get the right thing. By the way, I prefer the pill or check ball regulator to the dampener type regulators - you might want to research some carburetor websites for more information before you make the final purchase decision.

Good Luck
