I have been shopping around online for a low pressure fuel regulator and haven't been able to make a comfortable decision. Have any of you added a regulator and if so can you recommend a product?

I agree with Mike....stuck float. Run stock, they won't burn.

Hi Bill,
I have two Model A Fords running Stromberg 81 carburetors and I am using a Holley low pressure fuel regulator on both. Following is a link:

www.holley.com/products/fuel_systems/fue...ulators/parts/12-804

I have had good success with these with electric fuel pumps. My Cord Phaeton has a regulator on it as well, I will check to see what model when I get home from work.

Hi Bill,

I just checked my 812 S/C Phaeton and the answer is unanimous, it has the Holley fuel pressure regulator as well. I have also found it very useful to have a fuel pressure gauge on the system as well although the Holley regulator says that it comes preset at 2.8 psi which should be perfect. Attached are some pictures of the installation on my 812.
Good luck.
Bill
