I'd agree on looking at the condenser or coil as a warm/hot issue. Those cheep dial pressure gauges are pointless. I'd ditch it. Replace it with a fuel pressure gauge maybe. Or test the pressure.


I'm not being a jerk, but why two sediment fuel line bowls? The one at the mechanical pump works great.

I think the one on the mech fuel pump is just for show, he is using the elec full time and connecting it to the mech pump just for the look.

"...original style glass bowl type fuel pump (that I gutted and only run fuel through, because I like the looks of it)..."

If you replace your fuel pressure regulator, i would suggest using a "Malpassi" brand regulator. Dead nuts accurate, absolutely trouble free. Bought mine online from England, got it in four days.
