    Default {CARB-SWAP}Looks like time for a carb swap of my own.

    Simplified! I am going to run the EEC-IV ignition, AND my stock fuel pump and relay.

    Heres where the cool part starts. I am gonig to use an 84 ford tempo fuel filter, and my return line to make for a system that is cheap regulator friendly. Hook this to a 2150 that GL runs, and coupled with my existing stand-alone cruise, I will be rockin again, more reliable than evar!!!

    Ill take a pic of this filter later. Its cool!

    Okay, explain how you are going to bleed off about 40 psi of fuel pressure again?

    With THIS.

    Basically, it will bleed off the excess pressure built up the the regulator, out the oriface, and into the return line (I knew they came in useful for somethin!)

    Are they designed for that much pressure?

    They are originally used on a carb'd car that has a return line, an electric intank pump, and a non-feedback carb. It will work perfect.

    AFAIK, The pressure was close to the 32 I will be producing.

    I still think that there's some sort of tie-in regarding the CFI and the TFI distributor that won't allow you to run the TFI dizzy with a carb.
