Good little pumps. There are different versions, with different output pressures. The versions look the same and should cost the same.



If the carbs were intended to be run from a pump then any version MAY be suitable. If the carbs were designed for gravity feed then the lowest pressure pump MAY be suitable.



I think the lowest pressure pump is about 1.5 psi, which is similar to the lowest pressure that a variable regulator will go down to. 1.5 psi is about a 4' head, and if a needle valve can't handle that then its not trying.

For many years I used the Facet pump with the adjustable regulator they do. To set it Iwound the reg open til the fuel poured out and then wound back til it stopped
