    I've run this Carter in Outboard applications, (I know, outboard = weedwhacker. but I'm a newbie) with good results. The Holly marine pumps seem to foul up easier if any foriegn matter gets in them. They just seem to be heavier duty. My .02

    Call Clay Smith Engineering. Get one of their mechanical pumps. It will feed 2 carbs & up to 1,000 hp, no problem. It can also be rebuilt when it wears out. Never had one wear out on me in 6 years, but if it does, it CAN be.

    Wouldn't even consider using a cheaper electric pump on a boat, as they're no good unless gravity fed with WELL FILTERED FUEL, and if they have problems, you're just floating.

    Clay Smith is a great pump. Its true on the gravity feed on most electric fuel pumps with exception of Weldon. You can mount a Weldon on top of a fuel tank and it will preform and draw fuel. It is also continuious duty.

    I've read alot of good things about the Aeromotive pumps. If you're thinking about getting one be sure to do your research. In your post you stated that you're not running a regulator. I checked on the 11203 pump that Chris recommended and the 2 most popular performance sites that sell this pump give different info. Jegs shows that pump is internally regulated @ 7 psi and "should" not require a seperate regulator on "most" carburetors. Summit shows that same pump to have a max pressure of 14 psi. Aeroforce also makes a marine version which is part #11212 and Summit shows it to have a max pressure of 7 psi and it is good for up to north of 500 hp. I don't know what the difference is between marine and non-marine pumps as far as Aeromotive goes, but I do know that with Holley their marine pumps are built using materials that are more resistant to contaminated fuel which can be a problem when you buy fuel at the ramps.

    Make sure you run a relay with an electric fuel pump.




    I run two of the 150's, one on each tank. Not had a problem. The Clay Smith for your deal would be a good choice.

    I'm not sure about fuel where you are, but here they put about 10% ethanol in ours. It's been hard on fuel pumps and carbs, at least it has been on mine. You may want one that is alcohol compatible.
