    Hi All, The heat is on outside. And has anyone had any luck with those small ajustable fuel regulators on your low pressure carbs? Now that the regulator is in place I don't seem to be getting enough fuel? Just figured I would ask. Thanks, Tom

    Do you have it installed in the proper direction? What's you pressure gauge say?

    It looks like the one that I put on in 1997 and AFAIK it's still working. I have read about problems with some of the cheap regulators but mine has been just fine. It was an electric pump.

    I just realized while thinking about this response that my 2 97s on my Stude engine don't have a regulator. They were on the truck when I got it and working well so I never thought about it. I did rebuild the stock Stude fuel pump and replace the fuel lines that supplies them but they still work fine without a regulator. Just my personal experience.

    Use the Holley low pressure regulator, P/N 12-803.
