NOTICE

Supply of many sought after parts is limited. Covid ripple-effect economic disruptions have hampered our company's ability to restock items reliably. We are doing what we can to recover from the changes to our industry and the effects they have had on our business, but currently a lot of shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed).


Please do NOT email to inquire for stock status. Instead, to get stock status, place an order request, and the items will ship if they are in-stock, OR we will post an itemized stock status for delayed items typically within 2-3 business days.

Placing an order request adds you to the reservation waitlist for out of stock items. We work diligently to source and fulfill backordered items as best we can -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. You can trust that even if we can't reply to your email, we ARE working on it and will contact you when we have any updated news to share. And of course, you can also email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.


Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Your requested items might be significantly delayed by supplier-level backorder timeframes, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

Fuel Pressure Regulator AND Filter, Combination Unit, Carbureted Engines, 1.5-5psi
Fuel Pressure Regulator AND Filter, Combination Unit, Carbureted Engines, 1.5-5psi


 

Fuel Pressure Regulator AND Filter, Combination Unit, Carbureted Engines, 1.5-5psi is a low pressure regulator which works with most fuels except methanol. Output is pre-set to 3.5psi, but can adjusted with the turn of a screw to any pressure between 1.5-5psi. This unit also features a 25 micron stainless steel filter element, which catches sand, rust, dirt, and even water!

This regulator comes with a mounting bracket and hardware, the barbs are perfect for 5mm and 7mm hose used on vintage VWs.

The heavy wall 2" OD x 2" long glass enclosure makes it easy to see what is in your fuel, including water! Easy to clean and engineered to last, you will want one for all your carbureted vehicles.

Note that proper fuel pressure is critical for proper carburetor operation. Holley regulators are "OK" but don't go below 3psi, and stock carburetors (Solex, Bocar, Brosol, and Kadron) all run best with 1.5-2psi fuel pressure. Weber IDF, IDA, ICT, DFEV/DFAV, and DCNFs work best with 3-3.5psi, so this regulator works for all of them, even if you switch carburetors sometime in the future!

This is an EXCELLENT regulator to use with the stock fuel pump. Normal methods of dropping fuel pressure with the stock fuel pump are to stack gaskets between the pump and pump spacer, and this does work but it also reduces fuel volume. Using this regulator will keep full volume but wlll drop pressure, which is more desirable.
