I have been using electric fuel pumps since the early 80s on most of my engines. The one on my 78 Chevy P/U came in extra handy when I got a load of watered gas at a local gas station. I was able in a couple of minutes to empty the tank of fowl crap and get reimbursed from the station for more...
I had a 650 spread bore Holley on my 78 Chevy P/U spraying gas directly on the distributor probably 30 years ago. It scared the crap out of me, but I was 60 miles from home. I called around and found a used bowl at a speed shop. I drove to the shop, thinking "what could go wrong". Changed it out...
Bob, Everything you always wanted to know about your Carter BBD:
Float level=9/32" from top of float to top of bowl casting
Acc. pump=5/64" between vent washer and top of casting
Mixture screws=one full turn out from bottom, plus or minus 1/2 turn
Idle speed=500 rpm
I had issues with my 65 Coronet 318, alcohol gas evaporated from the float bowl after 2 days so I used a Carter electric pump. Depending on days sitting I hold the momentary switch to a 6-8 count, pump throttle twice-slowly, and she starts right up.
