Q & A

What's in the Box

Speedway Electric fuel pump is a standard pressure street pump for gasoline only. It has a maximum pressure preset of 7 psi and a free flow capacity of 97 gph. It flows 67 gph while maintaining 5 psi. No regulator required. 

  • Internally regulated at 7 psi
  • Gravity fed fuel "pusher" design
  • Mount below lowest point of fuel tank
  • 3-1/2" from mounting bracket surface to the very front of the pump
  • Fittings with pump are for 3/8" hose

Notes

The best location for mounting any electric fuel pump is the rear of the vehicle. The inlet and outlet of the pump must be mounted below the lowest point of the tank. This is necessary to allow for an adequate fuel supply. The pump is designed to push fuel and not designed to suck fuel out of the tank. It needs to be gravity-fed or if it’s pulling from the top of the tank, it needs to develop a siphon feed to the pump. The pump should be mounted on the chassis, IN A VERTICAL POSITION WITH THE PUMP MOTOR ON TOP. Avoid exposure of the pump and fuel lines to moving parts and to any hot areas, such as the exhaust manifold. The pump should not be mounted in a closed area, such as the vehicle’s trunk.

This is a 12 volt pump and the pressure is NOT adjustable. Pressure is pre set at 7 psi and maintains 5 psi while flowing 67 gph. If less pressure is needed you will need to also order a regulator such as part number 56058500. Pressure needs to be supplied as specified for the carburetor in use. Using too much pressure will force the fuel past the needle and seat in the carburetor and cause excessive fuel in the engine and the related problems.

Mounting Location Is it just me? I have never seen a fuel pump mounted below the tank. I have a 1936 Plymouth Coupe and no way can you mount the pump "below the lowest point of the tank". I currently have a "CARTER" mounted above the tank on the frame, but would like to install a newer one like this one from speedway, but am being told I can't use it. Can anyone please clarify if I can install this new pump in the same location? and if it really needs to be installed "below the lowest point of the tank"? Thanks, Jack

My installation is at frame rail level. Tank sits above by about 15 inches. And, the pick up tube in in the tank, bottom. Pick up is at top of tank. Works perfectly. Also, a VERY quiet pump. Perfect.

Ideally this pump should be mounted below the tank for best performance and longevity. It may work when mounted higher but the life of the pump will be affected.

It draws about 4.5 to 5 amps until the main gasket fails. Then it draws zero amps in the landfill.

This pump will pull 7.5 amps at start up and 2.5 amps continuous.

What is the thread size on the inlet & outlet ports? Is pipe thread or another thread type? I am going to compression fittings for seamless aluminum fuel line instead of rubber hose. I can't seem to get pipe thread to work for the fittings. Any suggestion

The inlet/outlet fittings are a British thread size and we have found no other fittings to work with pump other than ones supplied with pump. Fittings with pump are for 3/8" hose.

I just want to make sure I understand, when this pump reaches 7 psi, it will automatically cut off? I don't have to worry about it burning itself up? Thanks.

That pump should be fine for your application. It maintains a constant pressure of 5 psi at 67gph and has a maximum pressure of 7 psi which should work fine with the Edelbrock carb.
