Fuel Pump Pressure

Here he is again with another ****ed question . Just managed to get my fuel pump working but wonder what the output pressure should be?? Anyone know? ****--You know --I might get this baby going yet. Charging the battery now since I ran it down turning the motor over. sediment bowl is full so I just hope the carb is also getting fuel--Will pull the line off and see if anything comes out . Then to watch for spark --if I have fuel and spark I am gonna make it go.

Re: Fuel Pump Pressure

Keep at her Ken ... I have no idea if your supposed to have a set pressure or it just sucks the gas from the tank and the needle in the carb shuts or regulates the flow. Be like the vacuum tanks and gravity feed so little pressure, just constant flow as needed.
Anyone else have an idea ? Can't be much pressure if you can use a plastic milk bag as a diaphragm to get you home in a pinch as one of our DMAC members did.

Re: Fuel Pump Pressure

The pressure setting for an electric pump with a regulator is said to be between 2 & 4 pounds. I would expect that the mechanical pump is in that range, just as Norm said--"if gas flows it must be OK"
