I need some pointers on going to alcohol. Can you use a stock type mechanical pump? or do you need a high dollar belt drive deal?

I hear you need to run a return line, do you run a run line off the fuel log with a regulator off the mech fuel pump?

Any help would be apprecaited.

You can run a mech pump but really a belt drive is in my opinion is easier to get setup and prob better in the long run. I have never run a mech pump on alky but just seems there are a lot of issues with fuel delivery, pressure etc that are easily taken care of with a belt drive.

we use a mechanical pump, with a return line. I also use a regulator off a belt drive pump, blocked off one hole, reversed it, which allows keeps the fuel pressure at 7.5lbs whether you are on throttle or idle.
