My apologies, I realized that I posted this in the wrong spot. Sorry abuot that, first time poster.



So, I searched for this one, and found that a few people on this board havean electricfuel pump installed on there wing. Thing is, I could not find much detail.



I have a single carb setup on my bike (some kind of small holley) and my stock pump started the dreaded fuel spurt.

So, I see an electric fuel pump at the autoshop for 50 bucks. Sounds perfect to me, but seems too good to be true. I know this website already has a solution (Radakks) but $200 is a bit out of my range during these times.

Any advice?

Hey, fellow Austinite... A stock OEM pump from Honda is around $75 last time I checked. Crescent Mood Cycles has it for $85. So for less than $100, you can go stock pump that'll last another 20+ years.

There are different electrical pumps, you have to be careful and get the right one (pressure, flow, etc...). Aircraft places sell them as well.

I also have a single carb (on 2 bikes...)

Greetings to you too Fellow austiniter! What a great city eh?



Im hovering around buying a new stock pump. I was considering the electric only because I am not sure if the stock is delievering enough fuel. Im still searching left and right trying to figure out which Holley carb I have.



But, really, I and probably going to go with the stock option.

Mine's a close cousin to a Holley model 1940 one-barrel. I had a carb shop take a look at it, and they called it a Ford carb.

I've heard them used on Pintos and Jeeps 4 cylinder engines. My pump went out right after I put the carb on. Hey, 25+ years of Texas heat will do that to rubber...

The other bike has a 2bbl Weber.

well Ill be!!! I just looked up Holley model 1940and found thatthats the one I have!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!!!

Well that solves that! I cant thank you enough.



I guess I should look up how to adjust the air/fuel mixture :) I believe the screw on it adjusts the fuel, but Im constantly having to pull the choke back to "adjust" the air mixture.

My fuel mixture screw is all the way in. I know it's not supposed to be that way, but it's the way it is. It runs great, does not foul the plugs, and gets 37-40 mpg, so I'm happy with it. A couple of others I knew had the same exact setup with the mixture screw.

I'd like to jet it down a notch or two, but I'd rather just get on and ride, instead of wrenching on it.

Do you guys have any pictures of the carb setups? I would love to see how it's been done.

You have the exact same setup I have. It was sold by Cycle Innovations which had some presence in Houston. I bought mine new from someone that bought it and never used it.

Maybe we can get together in the next couple of days. I rode to Killeen and back today. Just got bored sitting at home!
