Fuel pressure

i have a late model block w/o a fuel pump boss and i'm swapping to a carb (dont try to persuade me otherwise either) which fuel pump should i use? Should i replace the inline high pressure pump on the frame with a aftermarket one built for a carbed vehicle or will the intank pumps suffice at WOT? i'm planning on using an edelbrock/carter carb with a performer manifold. Ignition is still undecided.

Re: Fuel pressure

does this mean you are actually going to keep the truck or are you doing the change on another vehicle? If this is about your truck why are you converting from injection to carb?

Re: Fuel pressure

Cuz i'm done ripping my hair out over the no start i've had for 6 months so i'll rip the EFI out instead. I'm not gonna pass inspection even if i do get the injection figured out and then with speed density i can only do so much before i have to swap over to mass air anyway.

Yes this is my truck and i might just wind up keeping it cuz then i can't sell it in Jersey anyway. Besides i'm tired of having a $8000 paper weight sitting on the side of my parents house.

Re: Fuel pressure

If you are done ripping out hair, for the price of converting it you can take it to a shop and let then get it running for you....It would be cheaper than the cost of a carb alone much less the rest of the parts.

Re: Fuel pressure

Well aware. I've taken my problem to 2 Ford master techs and the 5 expert Volvo (now owned by Ford) techs I work with not to mention picking the brain of every person i think might have an answer or another test i can try.
