Re: Fuel Pump Electric vs Mechanical
while I too prefer a mechanical pump my late model block was not drilled for the fuel pump shaft so I had to go electric.
Things I learned the hard way.
1. Install a fuel shut off valve before the fuel pump. Allows you to stop fuel from siphoning when you change/clean the filter. I also use as part of my theft deterrent as you can't get too far with just the fuel in the bowls and lines.
2. Install a good quality high volume/flow fuel filter right after the pump. I went with a Fram HPG1.
3. Install another fuel shut off in the engine compartment before the pressure regulator. This allows you to pull the carb and again not have fuel siphon everywhere.
4. Put a on/off switch in the 12v hot leading to the relay. This allows you to have the key "on" for other reasons without having the fuel pump running.
