1974 Alfa Romeo spider
I recently bought a 1974 Spider that appears to be a California car so everything is original including the grill overider and all of the fuel injection. I got the car after someone I knew was given the car and got frustrated that he couldn't get it started. I got it started with a fresh set of plugs, wires, all new fuel hoses, rear fuel filter & checking the injection system. After setting for a couple of weeks, it would barely start and run very poorly when it did start. I removed the fuel tank and had it cleaned and lined after the new rear fuel filter appear to be clogged. Now it appears that the original 2 port Bosch fuel pump has problems. I have read several other post and have a few questions; first, is there a fuel pump that has the same specs as the original? I know about the Bosch 070 (l-jet) but I don't like the idea of soldering up and redrilling orifices. Second, there is a guy that uses a Bosch 044 (CIS) fuel pump with a Holly fuel pressure regulator. I like this idea, but he stated that he designed it with the later 3 port Bosch pump in mind. Will this work with the older 2 port design? Also, if I choose to trash the Spica fuel injection system, can this setup be dialed down to work with a set of Weber like God and Jano intended? Finally, back in the 70's, I remember reading in Alfa Owner that there was a high pressure Holly pump that came with a regulator that everyone was using without the regulator. Anyone know what that was all about?
