1.6 install + Fuel pump questions

I'm getting ready to put a 1.6 8V in the ole' Sami. But, before I do I have a few questions for the seasoned professionals out there.

1.) Is anyone using the stock carb with the 1.6-8v? If so, are there STILL noticable performance gains?

2.) What fuel pump did you get and where di you get it from?

Thanks,
Pauly

Re: 1.6 install + Fuel pump questions

Hi Pauly -

We have one equipped that way at our shop right now. The power gain is noticeable and it works well. I do recommend removing the in-line vacuum restrictor to the secondary servo. This will apply more vacuum to open the secondaries earlier in the RPM range and give you a noticeable performance increase. A standard electric low-pressure fuel pump works well. We have them for $39.95. They are also available at most any auto parts store. Ask for one for a Ford Courier Pickup. Also, there are fuel filters available with three nipples. This is an easy way to maintain the fuel return line.

Re: 1.6 install Fuel pump questions

You might want to consider grounding the fuel pump directly to the battery. For some reason, this makes a difference. Fuel pumps were failing me with such regularity, that grounding directly to the battery seemed to improve their service life. Also, use a filter between the tank and the pump, as well as just before the carb. Hope this helps........
