Re: electric fuel pump
Hello Paul and Gang,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Yes, anything above 3 to 3 1/2 pounds, will have a bad ending, sooner or later.
The BIG advantages of electric pumps are, 1; on cars that sit for long periods, the fuel dries up in the carb float bowls and it takes a lot of cranking, to re-prime the fuel system. 2; when the electric pump is installed properly, toward the rear of the car, it "pushes" fuel, rather than sucking it. Plus, being in a cooler location, it helps prevent vapor lock, which is far from rare, in Crosleys, especially parade and "around town" cruise cars.
And yes, the electric pump kits, that Service Motors had/has, are of the correct pressure and include a relay, to provide better power for the pump and prevent starving the voltage, at the coil.
My 2 cents, take it for what it's worth.
