so i was installing some new rubber fuel lines. and i bought the 5/16th ID fuel line. and taking a look at the older fuel lines. and they seem to be a much small diameter. i worry that the larger fuel line isnt letting my electric low pressure electric pump build the pressure it needs to push the fuel to my weber carburetor. my car runs with sometimes when i begin to give it throttle, it will bog down very harshly. i believe this to possibly be a not-so-well tuned carburetor. 

 

but would the different diamater fuel line make a difference? 

 

also, what is a good fuel pressure regulator for the money? right now i am not running a regulator.

Thank you for that. Not a lot of pressure!

 

Now I'm going to make some of you mad...why the heck can't a person just put a Holley 2-bbl on one of these? I'm an old hot rodder and I quite like the old Holleys. They're so simple whereas the Weber is...not. Has anybody ever seen this done, and why would I not want to do so, other than restoration reasons?

Pick a carburetor - then try to get it to work.  Please stick with one of the common replacements (like the 32/36 Weber).

Please don't tell us that you have a Holley "Bug Spray" 300 CFM carb that you want to slap on your 2002  :D .
