EFI fuel pump with carburetor

We have a 51 Ford truck that came in with a worn fuel pump rod lobe on the camshaft. Barely moves the rod and replacing the cam is a b_tch on a flat head. Owner brought with him a Tanks Inc in tank efi pump and regulator kit with fuel return line. Should work and last a long time with the pump submerged in gasoline plus be way more quiet than a regular frame mounted electric pump. I've seen this set up a number of times on race cars but with a Holley high volume external rotary electric pump. Another option for our trucks?

Evan isn't that EFI pump a high pressure one? All of those I've seen produce at least 20 and some up to 60 psi. It will be more quiet but if used with a carburetor, I'm afraid anything more than about 5 wouldn't work well. I've been using a frame mounted pump for several years with good luck. The one I have produces about 2.5 psi and that works fine with a 235. The same pump is being sold on Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00496RE82/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I hate to suggest a Chinese-made product other than soy sauce, but I bought the first one of these in 1997 and replaced it in 2018.

FORD? What’s up with talking Fords? I’ve noticed in several of the forums lately that discussing the F word has become the norm. Shame on y’all!

There are new pumps out now being made for carburetors, https://www.hotrod.com/articles/aeromotives-tank-pumps-carburetors/ Any decent regulator should cure the pressure problem.

Holley makes a fuel pressure regulator one can put online to keep pressure down to 3-5 psi.

Wow, I didn't even notice this was a F*** question until you pointed it out.

Well, I mentioned a 'Found on Road Dead' product that no-one else produces that I used on my '37 GMC, to enhance the performance of the GMC. I wouldn't hesitate to use that resource.

Ed, Evan could have worded his post in such a way that the Ferd wasn’t the lead topic. Using parts from different makes to keep our trucks running is entirely acceptable. I personally own a Ferd but I don’t discuss it here, there are forums for every brand.
