Excessive fuel pressure causing flooding is becoming a common problem on new or recently rebuilt carburettor set ups. This can happen either with an electric fuel pump or when a cheap copy of an original mechanical fuel pump produces way more line pressure than the intended 3 to 3.5 psi. This problem is especially common on Ford and Volvo engines.
The solution is to install a Webcon Fuel Pressure Gauge.
Webcon part number WFR150K includes a superb quality 0-15 psi fluid filled fuel pressure gauge with a Webcon manufactured anodised 8mm 5/16” billet aluminium fuel line adaptor and plug, together with a couple of OEM quality hose clamps. All at an ultra competitive price of £34.95 plus VAT.
For vehicles with an EFI system, Webcon has the WFR151K gauge kit which features the same superb quality fuel line adaptor and clips, but includes a 1-8 bar gauge so that the EFI fuel pressure can be measured and set prior to mapping. The WFR151K gauge kit retails at £37.95 plus VAT.
Fitting either of these new kits is extremely easy. A blanking plug is included in the adaptor so that the fuel gauge can be removed after set up or left in place for continual monitoring.
