The stock carb fuel pump is rated at 2 psi - Qman looked it up in the FSM. This is not enough for the Weber. The Weber runs best at 5 - 7 psi. And after 20 years, I don't think my fuel pump is even putting out 2 - I think it's lucky to be getting .5 at this point. I have a clear fuel filter, and I can see how fast it's runnning through it, and it's barely a drip. I'm going to be replaceing it with a carter fuel pump putting out 7 psi, and a pressure regulator so I can adjust it to where it needs to be.
If you are running a higher pressure fuel pump, which one do you recommend for use with a Weber?
I'll be using a Weber DGES 38 on a dual-carb long block with a custom intake with a cross section that is 25% larger than stock and exhaust modifications. I know I may have to re-jet it, but IIRC one other member is running a DGES and I was willing to trade some mpg for low-end grunt...
As to the oil pump--would one of these high volume pumps be worth the $109 price tag?
