MG MGB GT V8 Factory Originals Technical - electric fuel pump
|Hi gents, can anyone reccomend, a electric fuel pump for my 3.9 rover I am dropping in my 74 gt. I am guessing the stock pump will not be big enough.It will have a 500 cfm carb.|
|Paul, I don't think you'd have any problem with the stock pump, most pumps have far more capacity than required. The stock SU pump isn't that different from the old Stewart-Warners we used on a lot of street rods for years with much larger engines and carbs. Unless you're racing and running very large carbs and rpms you should be fine. |
If you are concerned about replacement availabilty in the event of a breakdown, the I'd choose a small capacity Holly or Stewart-Warner type pump. You can find these at almost any auto parts or performance store.
I have fitted a Mikumi to my V8 some years ago (2000) after the SU broke down.
It works fine since then and I never had any problem with it, even not driving at 130+ Mls. on the Autobahn.
|I'm running the electronic SU pump in my car; 3.5 Rover + 500 cfm Edelbrock. Works great. I'd recommend it.|
|Thanks guys, that is what I wanted to hear|
|I've been running stock 77 MGB pump for 12 years with 3.5 Buick and 500cfm carb with no fuel supply problems.|
