converted to carb

30

Asked by Sep 23, 2016 at 01:59 AM about the 1989 Chevrolet Camaro IROC Z

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 350 engine that has been converted to
carb, contains an electric fuel pump in the tank
that pushes out too much pressure to the carb. If I
discontinue it n buy an exterior pump n connect it
to the fuel line on the in-tank could it still pull gas
through the line?

There are much less expensive fuel regulators that can be used with the external pumps to get you down to 9psi or under.
