Would it do me any good to run an adjustable fuel pressure regulator on my stock 22r carburetor to help with uphill wheeling? I know the weber carbs need to be run at like 3.5 psi, but would this even work on a stock carb? Does anyone know the recommended pressure for the stock carburetor?
These simple mechanical pumps rarely fail. Since the pump is right near the carb, it sucks gas from the gas tank - there is no electrical pump inside the tank pumping gas to the carb. A stock mechanical fuel pump puts out ~7psi, but can be regulated to about 4psi for better offraod performance.
but wait??..whats the point in droppin the psi from about 7 to 4??...
my truck acts like it looses fuel about 3/4 the way down on the skinny pedal...its somethin to do with the carb..we're thinkin MAYBE acceleration pump..but we're not sure..anybody got any bright ideas???
