... last video of today;
I wish you ALL a GREAT weekend.
Good afternoon, ALL.
Good morning, ALL.
I wish you a great week ahead.
Good night, ALL.
... forgot about this small clip. Any Fuel Pump suggestions?
.. 1 more video;
NOT MY BUICK ... sample photo.
I'm going to reposition the Carter Fuel Pump BELOW the Fuel Tank's level. Over 9 years ago, I mounted it ABOVE the Fuel Tank.
The I'll watch the Gauge for that drastic drop in Pressure. If the Pressure drop continues after the lowering of the Carter Pump ... then it HAS to be the Mechanical Fuel Pressure Gauge on the hood.
I "was" going this route with the "482 Stage-2 Stroker Buick" .......
A friend of mine informed me that all I need is a Mechanical Fuel Pump with ample Fuel Pressure.
I called RoBBMc Performance ... had a very informative conversation with them ... and found that all I need is this;
Have a GREAT weekend, everyone.
I use the CV Products pump, this one,
I got it from Jim Weise. It is for the SBC, but Jim put a Buick arm on it. It's all I have ever needed on the street or track. It is a NASCAR pump.
For a Stage2 482, the Robb Mc pump might not be enough, you might need his bigger pump.
Good morning, Larry.
I really appreciate this information. This Mechanical Fuel Pump sounds like a GREAT idea ... and saves me money this route. The 1000HP upgrade is what I'll need for the 482 according to RobbMc's Tech Support.
My other concern is the route of my 1/2 inch Braided Stainless Steel Fuel Line; I wanted to use the Electric Fuel Pump to route the Fuel Line on the Passenger Side of my Regal ... keeping it off the front & top of the motor, and further away from the Driver Side #1 Exhaust Header. And ... I put a lot of work into the Electric Fuel Pump's wiring/Relay/Fuse/Toggle-Switch ... it's going to HARD letting that go LOL.
I'm going to give it more thought before making a final decision.
Have a great weekend, my friend.
Good morning, ALL.
This is my 1976 Buick 455 V8 bare-block with Crankshaft, H.E.I., and other accessories.
I bought this motor from Mr. Jose' Evans .
This motor is currently in Mr. Jim Weise's possession at Tri-Shield Performance.
Also, Mr. Evans has a "Race-Ported" Buick 455 Edelbrock Performer Intake Manifold on hold for my 482 Stage-2 Stroker-V8.
I'm going to use my current Holley-950 on my 482.
Have a great weekend.
If you going thru the trouble of doing a stroke, I'd re think the edelbrock, its going to limit the potential. It's one thing to build a stroker and dress it up with manifolds and stuff and have a sleeper, but with all the hot rod bolt on stuff, it's kinda out of place imo
The issue is my hood not closing with the TA SP1 Intake ... Jose' Evans has a Race Ported Edelbrock Intake, that will allow my hood to close. How much of a power-loss do you feel the Edelbrock will cause?
On a 482 with stage 2 heads and a healthy cam much as 50hp at peak. Regals look good with cowl hoods. I'd just hate to spend close to 10k and leave easy power on the table. If having the stock hood is important then by all means you dont have a choice
I totally appreciate your advice ... and I understand your point. The other day, I found a Regal online with a SP1 Intake, GN Hood ... and the hood closes. He uses a 3-inch Open Air Cleaner like mine. I don't know how he/they did it. I'm going to do more digging in hope of finding a 455 Regal with SP1 Intake ... with a GN Hood closed.
Thanks again; oh ... that 50 Horsepower loss is a LOT.
I'm going to ask Jose' Evans if he has Flow Numbers on his "Race-Ported" Edelbrock Performer Intake.
Have a great week ahead.
Good Night, All.
Have a GREAT tomorrow.
