    Just bought the 70 Riv about a month ago. When I found out it had elec pump in the tank, wanted to see what my options are when/if this should need replacement. New here and really enjoying this forum as I figure it out. Thank you.

    Thank you very much. Thought it's kind of an odd combo of elec pump in the tank with lower pressure to combo with a carb. I assume it does this w/o a pressure regulator.

    No regulator.

    Welcome from Florida!

    The 1970 Riv is my favorite. I don't know anything about the fuel systems, but Larry is the man when it comes that stuff.

    Thank you very much. I'm so glad I found this forum, the people, the parts, and knowledge here is incredible. As this is my first 70 Riv, it will prove to be invaluable. Had a 92 Roadmaster previously and loved that.

    You'll soon find out that not many parts are repoped for these cars. Be careful removing things and NEVER throw something away thinking " oh I'll just get a new one at Napa tomorrow" cause chances are you'll be hunting for months/years for a good used one on line. If you need to have your sending unit rebuilt and calibrated this is the place I had Teo done, I think they're the only place that does them? Anyways you're in good hands here, nice car too!

    Great information to know, learning about this car from the forum all the time. Since I just bought in mid December, these are invaluable pieces of info that I am glad to know. Thanks to all that have continued to throw facts my way!
