OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is TEMPORARILY PAUSED to allow our warehouse staff time to catch up on the shipping and backorder backlog for already received orders in progress.

Our checkout system will re-open on Saturday January 29th at 3:00pm (MST)

You may want to copy and paste to save the items your cart (that includes links back to the items listings) in order to save them, just in case your browser does not. We hope that you will return when our online checkout resumes accepting new orders.

ORDER REQUESTS ARE BEING FULFILLED/SHIPPED as backordered items become available, but many popular products are delayed or in short supply. Restock ETAs for backordered items are often either unavailable, or unreliable. We continue to answer emails as best we can, but we are operating with less than half of our normal staff, so please be patient. Your understanding is appreciated while our company struggles to weather the challenges from Covid-19, and do what we still can to support the aircooled VW hobby.

Fuel Pressure Regulator, Basic, Carbureted Engines, 1.5-5psi
Fuel Pressure Regulator, Basic, Carbureted Engines, 1.5-5psi


 

Fuel Pressure Regulator, Basic, Carbureted Engines, 1.5-5psi is a low pressure fuel pressure regulator that works with most fuels except methanol. Fuel pressure is pre-set to 3.5psi, but it can be set to any fuel pressure between 1.5psi and 5psi. THIS ONE ACTUALLY WORKS, unlike the Purolator, Mr. Gasket, and EMPI Units!

This regulator comes with a mounting bracket and hardware, but does NOT have fuel line barbs, which much be purchased separately depending on the size of fuel hose you are using. This regulator is threaded to 1/8" NPT on both inlet and outlet, and does NOT come with fittings! Buy the fittings you need to match the sizes of your fuel hoses.

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.
