Carb/Fueling Probs
« on: 18:10, Sun 01 March 2009 »
Hi folks ..me again  :lol:  :lol:  

Got a problem ....my engine is backfiring fuel out of the inlet manifold ...could this be down to overfuelling?

Im using my clio 1.2 fuel pump to a 5gtt pressure regulator ..i was told this could be the case and that i should get an adjustable pressure regulater instead.

Im told the clio pump is around 14psi i wouldve thought the 5gtt regulator wouldve been upto the job lol ..i kno the 5gtt engine needs about 4psi of fuel.

Ive had the car running but it didnt run very long a week ago.

So would it be worth getting an adjustable regulator?

Im asking on here as i feel im just ploughing more and more money into this  :lol:  :lol:

The pump will be fine as i used the rsi pump when i done the clio conversion many years ago. All you need is the std gtt regulator ;)

By backfire do you mean pop through the carb, or is petrol spewing all over the place?
