Question fuel pump psi

i have a 1972 914 1.7 and i need a fuel pump. It has a stock single carb but had a non stock inline pump on it. What kind of pump should I use and what psi? The only info I found yet is that the ones at the parts store a extremely expensive. Please help.

Well....no 1.7 ever had a single carb 'stock'.

But most carbs are something like 3-5 psi it really depends.

I use the Walbro WEP38 on my carbed 72, here is a link to a site that has more info on them:

I agree with Conrad, stock would be a Bosch FI system. Just out of curiosity, what kind of carb is it???

the carb had a sticker that said INIER 009399. Is there a carb of that kind? It was hard to read the sticker and I couldn't find any stampings of the carb. I didn't want to take the carb off. It has been sitting for a few years and didn't want to ruin the gasket.
Any more help with psi, please?

Does it have two barrels, one which comes on after the other? If so, probably a Pinto/ Weber carb.

They work OK on a type I upright VW, but not real well on the Type IV.

Lots of imfo in te archives on the subject...bet you even have the 009 distributor as well....another piece of crud that some people put on these cars...

Just my $.02

thanks for the info, by the way, I know the carb has two barrels but I have know idea about the distributor. I'm going to try to start it tomorrow after I change the oil, plugs and wires, and put a battery on it. I also purchased a facet style pump to see how it will run. I don't know much about it but am learning. I am a chevy man at least thats what I have always fooled with. I thought it was stock, but was wrong. Does anyone know the best place for 914 book that would help me?

You will need a fuel flow limiter....the dial ones will work. The Facet can put out over 8 psi, you need no more than 3-4....

Advice on your facet pump is to send it back! I have gone through two in about a year, which is less than a 1000 miles for me!I have a 2.0 with dual Webers and will be following Conrad's advice for a new pump. Good luck on your new adventure.
