Re: Need fuel regulator advice
Remove your sending unit from the tank. Remove the intank pump from the sending unit, and replace it with a piece of rigid steel fuel line, you should be able to easily adapt the intank filter to fit on the end. Cut the orange line that used to feed the power to the pump, the ground can remain, and leave the sending unit line (tan I think) in tact, and reconnect the connector to the tank, to regain your fuel gauge.
Then attach an inline regulator (either vacume controlled or an electric), before the carbuerator, and adjust to what works best, for your set up.
This is not a hard set up to do. Almost any engine running over 450HP needs more fuel than all but the most advanced and expensive in-tank pumps can handle, so muscle car gear heads running fuelies, have been installing high volume, inline pumps, and doing this swap for years.
