[DMCForum] Re: OT: Need help with 84 VW Rabbit



Erik,

I certainly appreciate it when guys like you post things like this.
How much did you pay for it???

However, I'd like to say that one digit removed could mean a world of
difference in performance. It could me a lower output motor..who
knows?

I would advocate measuring main line fuel pressure in a DeLorean with
this pump. If it's the same, then I'd call it a good X-reference. If
it's less or more pressure....

Andrei found a good pump to mount outside of the tank that I'm
interested and I asked the same questions. Let us know what you find
out regarding the accumulator.
