As most of you know, my mechanical fuel pump shat itself at the nationals. The metal plate which holds the diagram was rusted out and not working as it should have. hmmm 40 odd year old pump, had done around 38,000kms with me with no issues.

I purchased a small Facet cube 7psi pump, Edelbrock 1-4 psi regulator plus all the fittings/fuel line/clamps/thread sealant. Quite an expensive process so far.

After mounting the pump on a large rubber block, I installed it upside down above the tank with a filter before. Tucked away and stays quiet. Wired it in through a relay from the ignition and battery.

After hooking the regulator up and finishing it off, I tested it all. The regulator had a rusty ball bearing and wouldn't allow me to adjust it. :x :x so it was pushing 7psi into my carbs, they then filled the chokes with gas and started dribbling out :oops:

I eventually got a replacement sent after waiting for it to be examined (STA parts) and hooked that up yesterday.
I managed to adjust it to 2.8PSI.

And then my carbs decided they would overflow with fuel again :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: I swapped the needle and seat out for another one i had in better nick but did the same thing.
My floats have been adjusted to 15mm gap and 25mm droop.

Any advice?? Short of buying new needle and seats, I am unsure what to do. The only thing which could have damaged something was the 6psi pump i borrowed to get home from the nats, we didnt have a regulator for the trip home and it drank lots of fuel

That is the rusty ball bearing in my old regulator which was purchased new of STA parts.
