Any recommendations on brands of a belt driven fuel pump that mounts on the front of the engine block or water pump?
How are these pumps set-up when running on high octane gas?

Give
Bob Oliver a call at Competition Carburation (775)331-5609. I believe it Built by Ron's around $400 for the complete kit which includes ,mount,belt,mandrel,pulleys. The bypass is extra. It is a very good fuel pump.

Will all belt fuel pumps still need a by-pass? What does the by-pass allow you to do?
I am totally foreign to these since we've always run a mechanical with a regulator.

i think the main reason that you need a bypass is because the belt drive pumps move alot of fuel

thanks for the replies . . . I think with running gas, I'll stick with a mechanical Pro/Cam fuel pump.

I can't believe no one mentioned KSE belt drive pumps. These are the best pumps. They even incorporate the powersteering into the pump, so that's one less piece of equipment that you have to purchase. They are a little pricey, but after you get past the purchase shock, they're great. You can use them on gas or alcoho by just making some minor internal changes and they have an internal by-pass. They last for a long time. Mine was used (4-5 years old) when I got it, and I've been using it for the last 5 years. Just minor rebuilds in the off-season, and I've sent it off to KSE once or twice for them to check it out (their turn-around time is awesome- out Monday, back Thursday on the West coast). Check the Parts for Sale on this forum, a guy's selling two tandem KSE pumps.
