Re: in tank fuel pump pressure?
Since I'm using the pump to provide fuel to a pair of injectors (with a fuel
pressure regulator at the end) there shouldn't be a problem with to much
pressure. More of a problem with not enough in my first choice (2-3psi just
woln't cut it.).
What I am doing is replacing the carbs on my motorcycle with fuel injectors.
The carbs are in very bad shape and are no longer supported (impossable to
find some parts without going to a salvage yard). Right now the bike will
run on them but it's a very messy run, missing and backfireing allong the
way. The real problem is that it idles at 4000 rpm, which for any manual
transmition vehicle can be a bit of a chalange from a standing stop, or for
going down a steep hill (in SW Wisconsin there are hills a-plenty!). So I
have purchase injectors from a 600cc arctic cat snowmobile that should be
the right size for my bike. At first I thought I would use the in-tank fuel
pump from my '82 240 (junked cuz of cracked head + major body rust) but now
I find that it woln't work, so I guess I'll look around for one of those
cars you mention (either in junk yard or maybe online, use parts? new
aftermarket? whatever is cheepest) and get me a fuel pump. I want it in-tank
cuz there is little enough room on the motorcycle for the ECU (product
called MegaSquirt) and hiding the fuel pump in the gas tank is a very
elegent solution. :)
Thanks for all the help you guys have given!
