I’m replacing my fuel pump and carb on my charger and having difficulty locating a mech pump that will work with my edelbrock carb. I picked up a carter fuel pump that has correct inlet and out sizes, but it’s providing about 8psi which is way too much for the carb. It’s a thunder series carb can’t handle this and I don’t want to install a fuel regulator.
The fuel lines are 3/8, but can’t find anything that has the correct size in and outs with 6psi max pressure.

Did you put a gauge on it? Those are the ones that have been putting out 10-12 psi. My last 3 I sent out to get rebuilt with the correct weaker spring, 2 of them brand new.
The one I bought in September was 6 psi aprox.

You got lucky. I have switched over to the Edelbrock 1723's because of the Carter problems. So far they have been right on, knock on wood.
