    Is anyone manufacturing a sbc low psi pump (under 7psi)?

    I was told carter does...I see one for sbf but not sbc

    Thanks,
    Pete

    Any generic parts store replacement should fill your need.

  4. I,m thinking he means an electric pump.....a stock pump would be too obvious.

    I figured since he told what engine he meant a mechanical pump.

    I want to get away from a regulator....and I know I could use a stock Gm pump for a 283. and I appreciate that link, but I think I should have spelled out my request better. I was looking for a mechanical pump under 7psi with a clockable lower housing. The geometry of my car makes this a challenging request.

    I dont want to run a fuel regulator off a fuel block from my firewall. I also dont want to run an inline regulator like mr gasket offers (clock like dial). I figured that there may be a mechanical pump somewhere with an adjustable lower housing offering under 7 psi somewhere so I can have "a cleaner presentation" if you will...rather than having to run the fuel line to a regulator then to a multi carb fuel line...

    Thanks guys for the answers.....I reallyappreciate it...I should of been more thorough up front....
     
  9. checking napa's website , i found this one for a 1963 chevy...part # M3120. they claim it puts out 5 to 6.5 PSI. it looks like you could turn the lower part

    I just searched Summit and they have pages of mechanical fuel pumps for SBC that put out 7 psi or less and are clockable as needed to get the fittings in the proper place for your chassis. Just choose your preferred brand.

    Edelbrock has one that's 6psi. I got one a month ago and it's doing great.

    Like said above. Edelbrocks work and are like the Carter street pumps which are no more.
