Default mechanical injection pump priming

Have a Hilborn ( PG-150A) belt driven pump on one car, and a Crower (80A-0) belt driven pump system on the other. Would like to know if I could use an electric pump w/bypass (to tank) regulator to prime mechanical pump(s) for self starting.

Would a FI pump be better, psi/flow wise rather than a carb pump? Suggestions on max psi to set regulators.

These are gas setups, -8's but could go to -10's if necessary.

Thanks for any help/ideas.........

Ok...

First you need that nozzle.

Then, since you said you're running -8...

You need that adapter on the pump inlet.

Now, simply take your favorite cheap ass electric pump from Auto Zone and connect the two together with a momentary switch. Put the primer nozzle in the distribution block.

Hit the button a few times to prime the entire system and fire it up!

Glad I could help. Just remember that the primer nozzle is -4 line, and the side feed on the pump inlet is -6. So you'll need the appropriate fittings to get it all mated.

RBS should also sell the -6 to -4 fitting for the mechanical pump inlet where you're going to pull fuel from. They'll probably also have the -4 to NPT fittings for the cheapo electric pump. Hoses should be available anywhere.
