Recommend electric fuel pump for 84 miniwinnie
« on: February 22, 2021, 09:18 AM »
So I'm waiting for payday on the 3rd and I've decided to both move my fuel line over and add an electric pump near the tank.

I just recently baught a brand new quadrajet m4mc less than a month old.
I had once had an electric pump back there but it was in conjunction with the mechanical pump.  Now I'm wanting to run electric only. I didn't like the edelbrock plastic pump just never seemed reliable. I have another Delphi online pump I'm not real sure of it as well.

So my questions are
What is a good pump at the recommended psi?
What is the best psi for Rochester quadrajet carburetor m4mc?


Please include links if allowed and thank you in advance

Depending on the pump, you might want to install a pressure regulator before the carb.

Looks like 4-5 psi but that seems high, I thought they ran at 3.5 psi.

I have a Mr gasket regulator that's 1-5 psi in the past 4 worked OK untill the pump went dead.  So now I'm stuck finding a reliable pump and putting it near the tank
