  • Fuel System: 289 Fuel Pump Pressure Differences

    Can someone tell me what the R1 Fuel Pump pressure is as compared to a standard pump for a 289?
    Thanks in advance

    Motor's manual says 4-5.5# for the standard 289. 5.5-7# for the R1,R2 engines
    American iron, real old school
    With two tone paint, it sure is cool

    Its got 8 cylinders and uses them all
    With an overdrive that just won't stall

    With a 4 barrel carb and dual exhausts
    With 4.23 gears it can really get lost

    Its got safety belts and I ain't scared
    The brakes are good and the tires are fair.

    Tried to sell her, but got no taker
    I"ll just keep driving my Studebaker
