The Facet pump has worked great for me for 25 years. Yes, it's fit and forget

Im thinking of going electric fuel pump on my car. IS the little square one the pump of choice? Does it need to be mounted as low down as possible or can it be mounted above the tank? what regulators etc are people using? I see sone of the pumps say you don't need a regulator??

All info greatly received.

I fitted the Huco pump several years ago on my plus 2 from Eurocarb and faultless, just been on a rolling road and been advised that Dellortos carbs run at a very low pressure and need 2 PSI otherwise they flood very easily so fitted a pressure regulator in line which now the engine start without fail first time.

with the Huco Pump there is a choice of 2 different Pumps with different pressures. The lower pressure one is for Weber/Dellorto carbs :wink: :wink:
