I used the low pressure Facet pump, 3-5 psi IIRC, for my carb. Dan from Reno

I'm using a Facet Gold-Flow 40007 between my gascolator and mechanical fuel pump. It's rated at 36 GPH at 4.0-5.5 PSI, and has a 74u filter inside under that twist-off cap. It's "free flow" with no internal check valve. Self-priming to 24 inches vertical fuel lift. I mounted mine vertically, as recommended.
