I bought a big electric fuel pump and regulator combo from Summit. Turns out the reg is an Aeromotive unit, it's just not annodized and dosen't sport the logo. Bottom 3/8" NPT inlet, horizontal 3/8" NPT dual (opposing) outlets.

I thought of putting the reg directly beside the carb, with the two outlets feeding the two bowls (Holley 4150) individually. Would putting the reg up on the motor pose heat/vibration problems for the regulator?

I'm guessing the reg has two outlets for either multiple caruretors or nitrous oxide fuel enrichment; but hell, it's got two outlets, no sense to block one off if I can make good use of both, right?

Whoa Todd!!
Aeromotive regulators are NOT NPT, but AN thread.
You had better check that first off.
Is your feed line still coming up and out of the drivers side?
If so, that's the best place to mount the reglator.
Right on the inner fenderwell.

Hmmmmm, I will check that for sure. It's a Summit no-name part, but even the info sheet refers to it as an Aeromotive regulator. I'll read it closely and check the thread pitch.

Yes, 3/8" fuel line is still on the driver's side, but I've got a 50' spool of 1/2"

This is alot more pump than that chickens*it mech pump I'm running now, I think I'll put the 1/2" line in while I'm at it. So, I may route the line up the passanger side, putting the (heavy) elec pump under the right rear. Good idea, or not?

Once you identify the regulator for certain, you will need special AN "o" ring style fittings. Std AN will work with a "o" ring slid on, but are more restrictive.
DO you still have the original tank with the drain plug on the left side?
If so then I have a plan for you.

It appears that the 13205 is the ONLY regulator with NPT threads.
Is that the one that Summit packages?

http://216.242.145.16/products/view.phtml?f_cat=Regulators

To tell you the truth, I must appologize as I didn't even know that Aeromotive offered that cheapie regulator.
As they say, "my bad" I guess.

Oh, sorry guys...I didn't notice that you were waiting for an answer. I continued with Todd via e-mail.

Anyway if you have a drain plug in your tank, then I have a great system for you.
This will enable you to have the benifit of a dual pick up system to feed your pump.
First you find a happy place to mount your pump. I like the drivers frame rail myself.
Depending on your pump, you will either run two #8 or #6 lines into each inlet. If you have a single inlet and outlet pump then a "T" or "Y" works fine.
The tanks have a 1/4 NPT threaded hole for the drain plug so you can use a slip on nipple or AN fitting. You can slip #6 hose over the 3/8 nipple on your fuel tank sending unit and clamp it. From the pump a #8 or 1/2 inch line all the way to the front where you should mount the regulator. The rest is obvious.
