new to forum need help fuel supply
new here and not finding my problem and dont want to post new thread already covered.
have a 69 impala with turbofire 350. have added intake edle torquer intake mainfold and carter afb 600cfm carb. replaced old nipple on inlet for carb for a banjo fitting and pressure gauge. pressures were reading up to and pulsing over 20psi which i figured was causing my minimal flooding problem. shortly after instalation of gauge needle broke and fuel was seen in the gauge. warranteed and replace, again broken and leaking fuel onto intake manifold. replace again and added a fuel pressure regulator. operation was great for one day, smelled gas, looked under the hood and the regulator was now a sprinkler. i have purchesed a holly red electric fuel pump and regulator as well as a block off plate.
my question is has anyone mounted one of these on a 69 and where? it says 2amp draw is a relay needed? as well as the origional problem, is somthing else other than the fuel pump causing the spike in pressure? sorry so long very frustrated.
