Just have a good regulator you didnt mention brand of that. Go here www.apdracing.com they will give you good info over the phone, no pressure from these guys just help. But if ya want a carb they are the place to get it .. :lol:

ask about the regulator with the Air bleed..you will need this for your electric pump to prohibit prerssure Creep or possibility of blowing carb seats out due to the high fuel pressure you need to run with the alcohol.....they can explain the way it works besides me trying to type a Book....
i know PRO- systems sells this regualtor for $75.00...you can also fab you one up if you know your stuff.

blow out your old lines. Replace the regulator, carb and fuel pump if using card. Lil more work if injected.
