Question electric fuel pump with a carb, will it work?

I was wondering if any one uses an inline fuel pump for their carbed engines?

brand ,do you like it? etc etc... also do you use a pressure regulator ?
I'm looking into buying an engine from a 91 marquis (302) and was thinking instead of changing the timing cover just using an inline pump . it's going into my 83. any thoughts?

I was running an aeromotive pump which is a great pump now i am running a holley blue and a holley black. No issues with these, the holley regulators are ok. Yes you have to use a pressure regulator, usually if you buy a holley pump it comes with a regulator then you just need some 3/8 to 8an fittings or whatever size lines you want to run 6an and some braided hoses to hook into your carb. or you can by one of those cross bars deals then run a line to it.

I would mount the pump pretty close to the tank, I have my regulator mounted on the strut tower then i built a bracket and mounted the pump on the frame under the trunk area.

I used to use holley pumps but found them to be to noisy, i now use mallory, currently using the 140 but upgrading to the 250 due to the nitrous. Unless your making over 300hp a 110 gph pump will work fine, mount it close to the tank and run a 3/8 line back to the motor, i think the stock fuel line is only 5/16, with a 110 i don't think you need a regulator but if you end up using a regulator get one with a return port so you can run a return line, it lets the pump run smother, be sure to have a good power supply and ground. Have fun.
