Will an electric fuel pump work for an L28 hi compression(9.8:1) carburated engine? What is the pressure rating of this thing?

Make sure the pump is a low pressure unit for carbs. A F.I. pump puts out way too much psi for float valves. A friend is running an electric pump in his '72 240 with S.U.'s with no problem.

I run a high pressure electric fuel pump on my 260 with an inline pressure regulator and downdraft webbers and it works fine set the pressure to 3.5 lbs.

Be careful, most electric pumps for FI cars can put out over 90psi. The kind of electric pump you are looking for should put out around 6-8 psi and even then you may have to regulate it.
