I need to change my fuel pump to electric
1. What PSI pump do I need for some new Brossel Carbs...
Choices 1.5-4 or 4-8?
2. Do I need to remove or block off my old petrol pump?

I have an electric pump that was on 2 litre with standard carbs.
You need to remove pump lever at least and it is best to put on blanking plate.

Swap you electric for standard pump.

Brookie you did not answer the question.....as far as the swap...- the old petrol pump has a loose brass inlet. Where do you get a blanking plate?

Usually cut them from piece of about 3-5mm alloy and drill two holes and use original nuts. Use pump base as template or the gasket if it comes off cleanly.

I assumed you had mechanical and wanted to change to electric.
