Yes it is easy! Just a big piece of advise. If you are currently running gas from a plastic fuel cell , REMEMBER if it has foamy looking baffle in there make sure you take it out. If you dont the alcohol will turn it to jelly and gum up everything!!! Don

BLP carbs is another. Very good work, been in business a LONG time and they make almost everything in house. They also supply a lot of other companies with components for Holleys.

BLP also carries a belt drive fuel pump with an internal resevoir (sp?) and fuel regulater. This means no inline regulator is necessary, and no return line to the fuel cell is needed. This piece is the cat's a$$!

I have both 1250 Carb & Belt Brive Pump .04 quicker than Rupert. Dont get me wrong nothing wrong with Rupert . I had a Rupert 1250 but this is much faster and runs so clean .
