I mounted my pump to the floorpan on the right side of the car, forward of the rear axle. It is not far from the bend in the exhaust pipe, but this has not been a problem. Mike, your research has been valuable. Thanks.

Hi!
I found running the auto-pulse and the mechanical in my 812, they will give plenty of fuel and can run on either one alone, I was considering a fuel regulator. I use a cut off electric switch on dash once its running. The engine can be very difficult to start after prolonged running, possibly from rich mixture, just baffles me. I have found in the prewar cars the pumps are fine except the alcohol will remove the shellac that they used to coat the carb floats and gaskets on assembly. They and the auto-pulse will leak with 10% alcohol, I have also seen carb floats dipped with paraffin repairs. If the pumps are disassembled and modern gasket sealers are used and the diaphragms are not perforated, they should be reliable. Also it is important to check the float needle & seat.

Hello All, You cannot beat LPG. I have now done over 10,000 miles. I do run a valve saver as well. But I dont think it needs it. Bob in England

Hi Sir, can I assume that 2 to 2 1/2 psi is the normal for a 1936 supercharged 852? I am trying to replace a faulty back up electric pump that does'nt have any P/N on it. should I go with the upright or the inline model? So to quote you if I dont find a matching PSI 6 volts I can install a 12 volts that its PSI will simply be divided in two?

Try a Air-Tex E8902 that puts put 2 to 4 PSI. That is a gear rotor pump that will not have a problem with ethanol fuel. The thread you are addressing is from 2006 and I regret to say some of the previous responders are no longer with us.
