2bbl conversion & stock fuel pump

Post #1 by Shelly6 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 9:33 pm

Hello! Any issues keeping the stock fuel pump when you convert to a 2bbl carb? Can it pump enough to keep a warmed over 200 happy?

keeping the stock fuel pump will be just fine. they put out far more than the engine can handle in the first place, so a warmed over 200 wont be an issue, unless you are thinking about making something around 350hp or so. then you start hitting the limits of the stock pump.

Hi, X2 the Holley carb does not like too much fuel pressure. Mine runs great with the stock pump.
Make sure there aren't any sharp bends, and support the fuel line.
Good luck
