Fuel pump for non diaphram carbs

Discussion in 'Performance Mods' started by capturedbyrobots, Mar 7, 2008.

  1. I have a problem.
    I want to do a strange project that would require
    using a motor that has a float style carb,
    and the fuel tank BELOW the motor by a few inches.

    Being that all of these float style carbs require the
    gas to gravity feed down into the float bowl,
    I'm trying to figure out what to do.

    Does anyone has a solution?
    I can't seem to find a small enough fuel pump
    where the gas won't blow by the needle and seat of the carb.


    12V can be provided without a problem.
    Thanks for any help you can give.

    I guess you don't want to try a carb with a diapham like I have on a "bikebug" ?
    I wonder if a 12 volt " inline universal windsheild washer pump" would work for you.
    Even better....use a tank with the pump that is one unit so that you have a gas tank with a built in fuel pump. I know it sounds crazy but......
