[TR] Electric Fuel Pump Recommendations

A lot of people on the List like--and I run one also--the little Facet Solid Stae Fuel Pump.  These can be had much cheaper from Aircraft Spruce & Speciality Co.  I just bought one there for $39.95, much cheaper than elsewhere.  See:  https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/eppages/facetpumps.php?clickkey=3012831

I run a 40105 with a little Holly regulator that's preset to, I believe, 2.7 psi, which is pretty close to the 2 to 4 pounds recommended for our cars, though research sees opinions lift this to as high as 5 pounds.  See:  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00029JC6M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The regulator wasn't necessary, as I ran the little Facet for years without one. 

I mounted mine on the frame on the driver's side parallel to the rear wheel well using thick rubber pads to cushion the vibration.  Wiring is simple.  The hot wire to one of the "key on" prongs on the fuse box, the other to ground.  

Have fun!
