    question for anyone who may know, the original little flat round metal regulator that screws into the front of the carbie, and the metal fuel line screws into that, broke off my 5.0L when trying to unscrew it. because it was old the metal fuel pipe going into it just twisted and snapped! :mad: i still run the std mech fuel pump off the block. now ive been told i really dont need a regulator cause the fuel pump will only put out around 7psi which is roughly what the carbie needs. im thinking cause it had one originally i should put one on! what you peoples think?? :thumbsup: thanks in advance
