And a few zip ties to boot! Couldn't resist, sorry. So my 76 ST12 was running great, was headed out to the garden with my daughter riding shotgun, drop the disc's to turn some dirt and pllleerrttt put put pleerrttt pow and done. Yep, fuel pump was done. I looked at the prices for OE pumps and was dumbfounded, $100+, really? So I went to my local autozone, got the lowest PSI/GPH 12v fuel pump they had which cost me 45 bucks or so, PSI rating is 3-6, and grabbed a $25 pressure regulator. Slapped it together with a few zip ties for mounting brackets, bolted the pump to mid floor section. She's running better than ever now, no stumbling when I hit large bumps, if I'm not careful with the clutch release it'll stand on the rears in the higher ranges. Not a huge savings but I'm a cheap-o, $70 and a bit of backwoods engineering I'll take any day over $100 and change. Just thought I would put this out there for anyone having fuel supply issues, don't pay the crazy price for OE pumps unless you're going all original.
