Phil,

1.25-2.5 psi per the Technical Data Section.
The same pump, X026 E 0370W, is used on both the Dellorto and Stromberg
versions of the Twin Cam engine.

Regards,
Tim Engel

Hi Phil,
I found that after replacing my fuel pump the float bowls tended to overflow. I installed an adjustable pressure regulator set at 2 1/2 psi and that took care of it.
The regulator I used is very compact with 1/8" FNPT connections and is supported by the fuel line (like an inline fuel filter). The brand name is ProFuel. May no longer be available since carburetors are fading into the sunset.
