    My 12 volt Holley electric can put out 15 PSI on 6 volts, so I slow it down with a 1 ohm resistor, and the pressure stays about 2 PSI.
    You haven't seen the pressure new replacement small block Chevy pumps are coming with these days then. I know a lot of guys that have had to add a regulator to their 60's Chevy after replacing their old fuel pump with a new auto parts store one. They are commonly pushing 7 to 9 lbs now, which I know is too much for an Edelbrock AFB.

    I used one of the regulators pictured on my Model T , with three Holley 1V carbs. Had it turned all the way down to get pressure low enough not to over run the float valves and flood the engine.

    Yeah, it's an aftermarket pressure regulator, and they can be useful. But it's plenty old enough to have a rubber diaphragm in it that won't stand up to alcohol fuel. It will most likely spring a leak if used with gasohol. I have seen it happen twice.

    I just acquired this barn find, going to do my usual drill and send the carb and fuel pump to Dave T.
