The in-tank fuel pump, also purchased from Tanks, was designed for carburetors with a maximum output of 8 psi, but they still advised us to use a pressure regulator. And while our tank and fuel lines are brand new they also recommend the use of a fuel filter, because dirt can be transferred while refueling.
A tubing bender was used for all bends, making for a professional looking job and preventing any unwanted kinks in the line. The line was attached to the chassis with Adel clips and routed up the firewall to a large Fram fuel filter and Holley pressure regulator. A Moon fuel pressure gauge purchased from Honest Charley Speed Shop monitors the fuel pressure and adds all-important style points to the firewall. The final connection from the firewall and hard tubing to the motor must incorporate a flexible line. There are several choices here, ranging from the basic neoprene gas line in black to a higher-quality braided stainless steel line with AN fittings. We opted for basic rubber hose as we are going for a ’60’s vintage appearance under the hood. Finally, we set the pressure at 3 psi to feed our trio of Rochester carburetors, and our all-new system was complete. CT
