Can anyone suggest a suitable electric fuel pump for an A12 with a weber 32/36 DAGV and stage 2 cam?

If you can find an old Facet pump they work well

* Weber wants 2.5 to 3.0 lbs pressure, most pumps are higher pressure, for example A14 pumps are 3.2 lbs. Stock A12 fuel pump is 2.8 lbs.
* Weber recommends 6/gallon per hour, which is about what the stock A12 pump does. It is sufficient for 150hp

Most electric fuel pumps nowadays start at 4 psi (too much pressure)

Look for fuel pump for carburetor
bing search for example Edelbrock 17330 3-psi electric fuel pump $28.44 closeout price

High-flow suitable for V8 engine -- or for a little 1.2 liter engine. Low enough pressure for a Weber 32/36

You could also buy a 4-7 psi pump and add a fuel pressure regulator

Thanks for the prompt reply. If the stock A12 mechanical fuel pump is sufficient I'll stick with that. I thought the weber may need more fuel.

Regards, John

sounds good. Just test the pump to ensure it still meets the specs (volume test & pressure test). Fuel pump pressure test
