Advise needed

Hi Folks

I have decided to fit a Facet silver top fuel pump 5-6 psi, because I can't think what else to fit at the moment 😁   Question is do I need to fit a fuel regulator ?   and which one would be best ?                                                                17 Crossflow with twin carbs 

 

Thanks

yes you will need one, i am going to assume you have twin webers - if thats the case they normally want to see no more than 3psi, i run 2.5 and it runs fine.

a product like a15cro has will do you very nicely.

same applies, the floats get over whelmed if you use more pressure resulting in fuel either leaking either within the engine bay or directly into the inlet manifolds.

Used to run 2.5 psi on the Xflow too. Webers again, but as @OldStager days, same applies. 
 

3psi was a gnats too high and it did indeed cause the float chambers to overflow at times. Not good!

What pressure setting should I aim for a 2.0L Zetec on twin Weber 45’s?

 

I assume in the same range of 2.5-3.0 psi ?

Generally speaking, yes :)

Generally with Crossflows on Weber carbs, the commonly used regulator is the Malpassi type.

The regulator shown above is too high a pressure for carbs

Which ones are you referring to? 2.5- 3.0 ?

The blue EFI regulator with gauge showing 140psi I imagine!  The vacuum port is a giveaway too.
