Qeustions:
1. can a deadhead style regulator be used as a bypass regulator by routing the supply line to the side(originally to carb bowl), and the return from the bottom (original supply inot regulator)? Or is a dedicated bypass regulator required?
2. when using a bypass style fuel system is it MANDATORY to use a return line larger than the supply? Or can the return be EQUAL size, or how much smaller can you go??

You can modify it like Oz Cheek did. Inlet and outlet are the original outlets, and the return line attaches to the original inlet. You want to have a return line large enough to keep the regulator in its range. If the line is too small you will not be able to regulate the pressure at at low fuel consumption.

Are you saying that I could use a dead head regulator, put the return line where the pump line goes in, put the pump line in one of the regulator outlets and put the line to the carb in the other regulator outlet?

If you do it like Oz did. You won't have good results if you just arbitrarily start hooking up lines...
