    Default Gotta change from Mechanical to a Electric Fuel Pump

    Hey folks,
    I've been running one of the Carter 170gph mechanicals on my boat and loved it but now the new motor that will be going in does not have a fuel pump boss so I need to make the plunge and switch my plumbing to an electric pump and regulator (the Carter did not require a regulator).

    Looks like you can spend as much as you want on this stuff and since I'm not made of money, curious what you folks recommend.

    Gen 6 BBC, 8-71 and twin double pumpers.

    The boat is a little 18' Brendella jet where room is at a premium (pic of the old motor below) and I'm not completely certain where I'm gonna fit this thing. The Transom is damn near unreachable and full already with my sparky sparky stuff.

    Thanks a bunch for the advice and recommendations..........john

    Default Pumps

    Hi John, I have been using a Product Engineering pump, filter and regulator for about 7 years with absolutely no trouble. Not sure if this is the budget your looking at but they do seem to be a fine pump.

    John,

    Get ahold of Tony and use the same pump set up he runs on his blown deal. A little more pump than you need but it will be the last fuel system you will buy for that boat if you ever go bigger in the future. Wich we all do!

    A little info:

    http://www.performanceboats.com//showthread.php?t=26984

    The Holley regulator # 510-12-704 is a good hi-flow inexpensive reg.

    On the fuel pump if space is at a premium I've heard good things about the Aeromotive in-line pumps.

    Thanks for the tips guys.

    I'm not really a fan of electric pumps but I have no choice (unless I go belt which is NOT in the cards).

    Take care

    Definately need a new deck of cards Travis. No way I'm gonna hang with you big dogs this year. I'll just be on the beach and watching. .

    I can't run a mechanical. Gen 6 block with no mechanical fuel pump mounting option.
