I picked up a small electric fuel pump today for 50 cents. Seller said it worked, put a vacuum gage on it and it pulled between 3 and 4 lbs.
Is this the pressure it would put out?
Would it work on a CCKA?

You can't judge a pump by its suction. What matters is the max PSI it puts out and you don't want more than about 4 PSI for this application. You will have to find a low pressure gauge to measure it or just install it and see what happens. If the engine floods, then the pressure is likely too high.

I would change for one of two reasons only.

first if my old pump just wasn't pumpin'

Or if my tractor would likely set for long periods of no use. In that case the electric will fill the carb and prevent long crank times.

On a related issue: has anyone located a low pressure regulator? I have a Holley like used on cars/trucks left over from a truck project but they don't work well at really low settings. Is there one available that would reliably provide 2 psi out with 3-8 in???
