is there a block mounted fuel pump to run alcohl that you don't have to run a bypass
and all that other stuff?

Mine goes thru the block mounted fuel pump, up to the fuel log that feeds the carb, then a bypass is attached to the log and sends it back to the cell. Is that what your wondering or are you looking for the bypass to be part of the pump?

Before we switched to the belt drive pumps, we ran a Holley pump with out a regulator, it just ran from the fuel cell to the pump, then from the pump to the fuel log, no problems 7# at all times

I've run without a return line or regulator all year long without any problems. I thought i needed one till i found out several of the guys around here run without them.

If you're running a belt driven pump, I find it hard to believe that you don't run a bypass and return line unless your pump has a built-in regulator because if you put that much pressure straight to the carburetor it will blow the needles off the seats. We had problems with a cam driven BG pump until we put on a pressure regulator then problem was solved. Just sharing my experience, and ................See ya at the track!!

The bypass method, regardless of pump is so much more versatile. You can change fuel pumps, carbs, even fuels for that matter and have the ability to adj your fuel pressure and go back to racing without having to worry about flooding the bowls or going lean. The bypass method is cheap insurance and flexibility. JMO
