    The supply pressure is minimal, in fact if there isn't any air in the sytem the injection pump can pull enough fuel all by itself. The parts truck we had bought had a non functional lift pump and it ran fine...

    I'd imagine 4 or 5 psi to the injection pump would be about right, but I don't have the exact numbers.

    The dual pumps and regulator would be a waste of time and money IMHO. Just get a cheap electric fuel pump for carburated vehicles and be done with it.
