              77 Had the best looking rear end of the Cordobas...prettiest tail lights and the only year they came with the medallion lock cover.

                  so why is it all the new fuel pumps have the pressure too high ? I had to install a regulator also. $25.00 ended up costing $60.00 :rolleyes:

                  That's a nice one! You've done a LOT. I miss my Spinnaker White 77 400 but it went to a great home.

                    Holley's don't need a regulator. I tried out a thermoquad once and had to add a regulator.

                    Holley's can definitely handle more pressure that is certain. On a Holley with a center hung float its easy to compensate for higher pressures by adjusting float,to an extent, and past that the needle cant stop the flow any longer. I have seen them do 10psi pretty easy.
