Get the "low pressure" version and you don't need a pressure regulator. I ran
one on a Midget with SUs one one on a Lotus with a side-draft Weber. No
problems. (OK, one spring the Lotus did not fire up. I disconnected the pump
hoses and shot some compressed air through the pump in the forward direction.
Everything worked fine thereafter.)
Put it close to the tank and be sure there is a filter between the tank and the
Bypass the mechanical pump entirely.
Remember that a Facet pump is like me and not like an SU pump: It never shuts
up. It keeps on ticking even when the carb is no longer calling for fuel.
