Default Re: 1930 Model A 4-Cyl. with Electric Fuel Pump Dilemma

Matthew, That is a nice looking roadster and you are doing a good job building it. I cannot help you with the regulator issue except to check the plumbing as Big Hammer suggested. However, you are going to get a lot of flack from other forum members for not using the original gravity feed system. But I understand why someone would do this as it opens up the under the cowl area for things such as AC and a radio and a bunch of nice gauges.

Have you tried disconnecting the carburetor and running the fuel into a can instead? If the carburetor is full it will keep the fuel from filling up the lines and sediment bowl.
