Re: Pressure regulator

I did the 1.6 swap a while back and opted not to put a regulator on just yet. So far, I don't notice a need for it. Drive everyday to work. Had it on the trails a couple times... no problems. I figure I can always add it later if I start having troubles. But for a carb, that only needs 4psi anyway, it's not that noticeable, yet. (Fuel injection is another story altogether!)
-my 2 cents

Re: Pressure regulator

The problem i'm having is that when it idles pressure builds up in the fuel line and causes the line (where the rubber attaches to the metal) to leak...i'm going to try and seal it better but there is only so much you can do with a rusted line!

Re: Pressure regulator

Do you have a fuel return line? I found an in-line fuel filter that has a third nozzle on it for fuel return and attached it just before the carb (now I have 2 fuel filters), but this allows for the fuel pressure to release and return to the tank.
With an electric pump that's giving continuous fuel to the carb, you gotta have a return of some type, or it'll make it's own, which is usually the weakest connection or rust spot [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

That may be an option...where did you find it?

Re: Pressure regulator

Just a couple of bucks at the local AutoZone or AutoWorks parts store. I forget the item number, but check the size of your gas line, and there's only 1 size for return line, which is smaller. Fits perfectly.
