Title: Filter King Regulator
Post by: smithymc on May 09, 2021, 06:40:11 PM
I have one of these taking up shelf space so thought I would fit it, as a period modification.

The question is- where should I put it and how to mount it? Polite answers only.

Thanks

Mark

Hi - I put mine as shown in the pic. There were a couple of holes already in the side of the bay, that I picked up on with the angle.
Seems fine. I have an electric fuel pump in the boot, and an inertia cut-off switch - just in case.

Will the Filter King work OK with the manual pump that I imagine is fitted to Mark's car? I've often thought of fitting one, but don't want to go electric.

I used to use them on pushrod Fords in the 80s, with mechanical pumps I would have thought.

Hi Mark,
I took the easy option and fitted it as below but it is used with a Facet Silver Top electric pump at the back.

I have been having repeated difficulties with fuel contamination, and fuel filters are living short but cheerful lives in my Beta.  I shall try a second flush of the tank, but am also getting a Filter King fitted.  I have one in my Leyland Princess and it seems a good device.
