    Heres what I got: picked up an 89 TBI for 100.00 bucks from a friend, I want to run my truck avenger carb. Hopefully im retarded and its an easy fix, but what do I do about the fuel pump. The newer block doesnt have a place for the fuel pump to bolt up. Can I run a electric pump for a carb? If so does anyone make one for that applacation. Thanks for the help:confused:

    Just use a pressure regulator.

    Yes you can run an electric pump, just make sure you put in a pressure regulator. Carbs like it at about 5 - 7.5 and Holleys are a little sensitive when it comes to fuel pressure.

    i'll take that as a yes I can use an electric pump, an if so what pressure would be right. And any inline pump will do? Thanks

    being a 89 you should have just a block off plate where a fuel pump can go. I know they still had theses on a 93 1500 my dad had

    I'll check again, but there appears to only be a half milled out hole there. No spot for the fuel pump rod to go. but i'll check.
