Default Fuel pump

I am in need of a low pressure 6 volt fuel pump for my Webber down draft carb set up. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

I have found that a 12 volt pump from NAPA will produce about 2-3 # pressure when connected to 6 volts. It works fine and won't over pressure the float.
I have done it many times.

Use a rotary pump and not one of the solenoid types. Ethanol gas destroys the vibrating types in short order.

My rig is 12 volts. I am using a generic fuel pump I bought at O'Riley's, plus a Holley regulator set to 2.5 psi, feeding a single Stromberg 97.
