    Best Electric Fuel Pump for 3.9 Rover

    Morning All,

    My Red Top Pacet fuel pump has just failed after 20 years service!

    I was just going to order another but wondering if there are better alternative pumps available these days?

    It’s a 3.9 Rover with Edelbrock carb and Filter King regulator. Pump in boot.

    Any recommendations please?

    Thanks

    I switched to Carter P4070 pumps, after I had a couple of modern (genuine) red tops fail.

    Mate,

    Both mine are 350 Chevy, with 600cfm edelbrock carb.

    I still follow steve lang’s recommendation, of a coarse filter between tank and pump (100 micron), to protect pump. Then a fine filter (40 microns) between pump and engine, to protect carb/engine.

    I still have regulators on both my cars, as they were there when I had red top pumps. But from memory, the carter pump doesn’t require one.

    According to manufacturers info: The carter is internally regulated and puts out 4-6 psi. Think my regulators are to set around 5. Probably doesn’t make any difference, just not bothered removing them.

    Hope this helps.


    Cheers Gav

    I ran a carter p4070 on a RV8 3.9 with a Weber 500, no regulator and it worked a treat.
