Electric Fuel Pump?

Does anyone have any suggestions/info about a particular brand/model of electric fuel pump for an '87 sami. If you could include cost and purchase
I currently have a Weber installed and will be doing the 1.6 8 valve carbuerated conversion.

Thanks in advance,
Shawn

Thanks,

Re: Electric Fuel Pump?

I installed a Faucet 1.5-3.5 psi electric pump in My 86 when I did my 1.6 conversion.
From JCWhitney, 36.99, part #73xj8895x, also put in a regulator if you don't already have one. This look like the same pump Calmini sells with there conversion kit.

Thanks for the info.
Does the regulator help with Weber off road problems?
I thought I read it somewhere.


Thanks,

Re: Electric Fuel Pump?

The Regulator helps but there is alot more you can do to make it more off-road-able.
jet sizes are the main thing, Most think that closing off the bowl and providing a higher vent via fitting screwed into the top just dosen't work. the fuel drains through the main jets at an angle, so installing the correct jets for your alttitude will decrese the stall factor. Mine will run at any angle with just slight throttle, no matter what you do,next to turning it 180 deg, it will still stall at idle on a hill.
FYI, I run 190/170 main/sec air, 120/110 main/sec fuel, 45 idle, at 5200 ft. with 1.6 8v.
I can drive up a hill (about 3 on my tilt-o-meter) at 1200rpm's with no stalling problem.

Don't use a Puralator they are garbage. I am currently running the $30 AutoZone special and it works great. Has a warranty too.
