« on: March 14, 2004, 10:02:47 PM »
Hello everybody!
Do you know what fuel pump was in x1/9 abarth prototipo? Was it Facet? Was this one or two pumps? Were it was mounted?
Another question about brake master cylinders, i know that there were two Girling pumps, but what model?
Thanks for any answers.

Twin Facet pumps

Guy, I noticed twin pumps in your AMA winner as well. Can you explain what the setup is:
- parallel or serial?
- pressure regulator?
- facet red tops?
- Ideal pressure for twin webers? 4 psi?

Thanks!
Peter

Thanks for the quick reply!

I am not sure what happens, but if you put them in serie, aren't you doubling the pressure? Is that the reason? What happens if one pump fails?
