I know the set up in the trunk looks a little messy, but its the best I could do with what I had to work with. That pump that I got needs to be mounted at 45 degress like that... so with the fuel filter and all the weird angles thats the cleanist look I could get without mounting it further forward, which I wanted to avoid. It does look a little better with the trunk floors in.

As I said before I wired it from fues number 12, into the dash and through a small rocker switch under the steering colum, then back to the fuel pump. If anything I can use the switch as an anti theft device, but I do plan on putting some kind of safty cut off in too. The good news is I switched the pump on for a few secs and it all works, but damn its loud!

That copper cover is from copper guttering... I hope copper is ok to use. I put it on there with some good rtv, a little around the bolts and a little around the pump rod hole.

As you can see I cant test it because my manifold is off (again!). Waiting on new gaskets.

Now where can I pick up a fuel regulator. I've already been to most of the local parts stores, they all say A) they dont have regulators in stock or B) they cant tell me how many psi the regulators they have in stock are. I figued one of these places would have a generic regulator that you could adjust, but no luck. Anybody have any ideas?

My fuel pump says 4-5 psi. It's mounted in the trunk, so maybe only 3-4 psi at the carb? Can the weber handle that, or will it flood?

Fuel doesnt exactly compress in the line ;) (and even if it did....), so if the pump is pumping 4-5 psi, the carb will be getting that too on average. Just get a decent fuel regulator and save your sanity and maybe the carb. The one I have (pictured, just went out and took a pic a little while ago) is a Purolator ProFuel reg. and it has worked fine. You should be able to find one, or something like it just about anywhere. I got mine at a local shop so I cant say that a place like Kragens / Grand Auto / PepBoys / NAPA etc would have it but theyve got to have something....

If you're really running out of options, I just did a search ("purolator regulator") on eBay Motors and theres a few on there. None are mine, just an observation. Good luck.

Place rubber washers (or thick gasket material, hell, even dried rtv) between the body of the fuel pump and the car. It will dampen the vibrations that the car feels and lower your noise level.

Also helping on that front and giving you some protection, you could build a simple wooden box w/4 sides (two ends, a top and a side) to mount over the fuel pump and filter assembly. You can use simple "L" brackets and sheet metal screws to hold it (watch where you drill) and when you have it shaped like you want it, coat the inside w/ruberized under body coating, which will make your noise level almost nil.

Good luck w/all of it,
