    Default Another fuel regulator question(s)

    Just got my clay smith pump today from Superdave,and I'm having my doubts about the 20 dollar holley reg I already have. There was a thread a while back that said hard mounting a regulator was a no,no. For now I'm planning on the system being a deadheaded type(no return lines). I was curious what would be the best bang for the buck regulator.

    Best bang for the buck regulator is the cheap holley one!! Ever look at a pro mod nitrous car....all they use is the cheap ass holley regs because they work well! We have flowed and tried many different regulators for nitrous set ups and these work the best!

    In your case with a low pressure dead head style system the holley would work just fine!

    Used Magnaflow for a while. Seems to take the punishment and still works... Workmanship is top notch.

    Ps. That's a good pump, and my next one too!

    If you are running dual carbs, you'll what this gem here, can't beat it for the price. What exactly do you mean by hard mount regulator?

    I just have a single carb. Re the hard mount comment, a while back on jets there was a regulator thread where a few said not to mount the regulator to say a bracket under the carb, because the vibration could cause reg. issues. If the holley will work, I spend my $ somewhere else. I think I'll just use the reg. as the t to both the bowls. If I only put a pressure gauge on 1 side, I guess it would be safe to assume the pressure would be the same on the other side as well?

    This should work for you. Buy the ref reg when you get to that point.

    No big dollar pro mod is going to regulate fuel with the cheap holley regulators. Are they?

    I've been using the same cheap Holley regulator for years on both mechanical and electric pumps. The mechanical was on an Edelbrock 130 gpm pump. I've used it on Holley's blue and now black pump on engine making 700sh hp. It's been mounted on a bracket on the front of the passenger head since 03. A line from each out let to each bowl. Still working fine.

    Default nice pump

    I like to run a a return line.
    anything over the psi I want goes back to the tank.
    the demand is being meet by the carbs!

    I do not like dead head systems.

    Maybe some day, the biggest thing I've read/heard about a dead headed system is it's hard on the electric pump(heat ect). That's part of the reason I went back to a manual. I was even planing on doing it now, until I heard a bunch of negatives about doing the return back to the line instead of the tanks.
    I'm pull off both tanks one at a time,and couldn't quite wrap my head how to pull off the 2 tank, one at a time thing. Clay smith's tech line said the holly(deadheaded) thing would be fine. I guess I'm about to find out.
