Swapping fuel pump does the fuel regulator need to be adjusted after install

Recommended Posts

I have a 1984 Turbo and its running great.  The fuel pump is a Mr Gasket and its has this awful buzzing sound.   I bought the correct fuel pump from JSJ and when I replace it does the fuel regular need to be adjusted?  The Mr Gasket pump is a higher PSI and I'm not sure if its setup different ?

And any photos of what a correct setup looks like would be appreciated.

Its actually very straightforward.  Fit the new pump.  Get an 8mm barbed tee piece (ebay) and a fuel pressure gauge. also barbed fitting,  maybe in the circa  0-20 psi range. (ebay)   Position tee piece/guage  anywhere convenient on the fuel supply pipe.  then just adjust the pressure by turning the centre screw on the FPR.  I use 4.5psi, set with the engine idling.   Use hose clamps on the barbs as an unregulated pump can easily dislodge fittings
