Re:Carb Question!

Since we are on the question about carbs, just a word of caution, don't forget about the fuel pump. I swaped out my carb for a new one along with the fuel pump. Put on a new edelbrock and 2 days later the car caught on fire while I was working on it in the garage. Had I been on the road I would have lost the whole car. What I found out after pressure testing the pump was, it was pushing 22lbs of pressure instead of the normal 6 to 9lbs. Needless to say I have now installed a fuel pressure regulator between the carb and fuel pump. Just a thought for safety.

Don ;D ;D
