about Electric fuel pumps this is why I really enjoy ACVWSA !
Been doing research on this topic for my engine build and want to go with an electric
fuel pump setup on a 1600TP type 1 motor with twin 36idf Webers, also going to be using
a G Tech electronic ignition system.
I spoke to the guys at Huco in Boksburg and was told the Huco 133010 has been discontinued
and the two options are the 443000 (Tank placement) and 443010 (Engine bay placement)
But reading here believe these are no good !
I see the other option is the Facet 40163 .... where can I get one of these ? Considering all
the drama at the moment don't want to try import anything and would prefer to walk into a
shop and get one ... ( not sure if this is wishful thinking )
Beside the above options are there any other options ....? what solution does Volkspares in Jet
Park offer ... ?
I use and sell a pump that works perfectly for the weber IDFs without a pressure regulator. I've been using them for years on my own rides and selling them to others. It is also pretty damn quiet.
I also have the Gtech and new Bosch coils in stock.

I'll only use a fuel pressure regulator as a last resort. More plumbing in the engine bay introduces more connections and clamps that could fail, increasing the risk of fire.
