Default Holley pressure regulator

Does anyone have a picture of mounting a Holley pressure regulator between the pump and carb using copper lines not hose? Thanks
John

Here's mine in the frame just after the electric pump but before the mechanical. Still shows how to hook up with metal fittings.

Thanks Professor, I plan on keeping my mechanical pump. I have an electric pump down where yours is but seldom turn it on. I will have the pressure gauge on the Holley. Do you use the mechanical pump or just electric. Do you have a gauge somewhere? Thanks

That setup will not regulate the mechanical pump

Here's one:

The electric fuel pump near the tank feeds fuel forward to where it enters the bottom port of the Holley regulator. The fuel then exits the regulator to the carburetor as shown on the left hand fitting in the first photo.. A pressure gauge screws into other port on the regulator. With engine running turn Allen screw to adjust pressure and lock the setting with the hex nut..
This regulator has the "low pressure" internal spring and supplies plenty of fuel to a Holley 390 4 barrel.
The lines are 1/4 in. steel (painted black) with "Aeroquip" type fittings that I also painted black after install. Lots of companies make these fittings. Russell comes to mind. Available at speed shops and on-line. Hope this helps.

I just use the mechanical pump until vapor lock then turn on the electric one. Don't have a gauge plumbed in anywhere.
