I apologise for such a lame question but I replaced my fuel pump a while ago ( previous one dripped fuel ) but I have just noticed that when I'm on tick over my manifold vacume isn't constant and my exhaust smells a little rich. I believe that my needle valve is being over powered by the new fuel pump but I can't find a reference to say what the PSI should be.
I bought a generic pump designed for cab engines which didn't specify PSI on it but I'm going to connect a gauge to it tonight and find out.
If this is the case does anyone know of a place I can get a simple fuel restrictor, no bells or whistles, or is there anything I'm missing. I don't want to buy another pump unless I have too.
Incase anyone is thinking, I had replaced the fuel filter a little while ago which is probably what caused the original fuel pump to malfunction in the first place.

You can get a pressure reducer from any good parts store usually. The performance places that sell lots of holley and edelbrock stuff usually have them.

At least it ends with a cheap solution.
