Hey

Where can i find a decent fuel pressure regulator.

cip1 doesnt have the one i have in my car - it is an adjustable guage numbered 1 through 8. You can adjust the "dial" to moderate fuel pressure.

Cant seem to find one like mine anywhere.

Thanks

For my B2200 truck with Weber, I bought Spectre brand at local parts store, didn't like the plastic screw-in fittings. But that was moot as it wouldn't flow gasoline the next morning, returned it.

I bought EMPI brand at local BAP, had metal fittings. About a year later it just began leaking one day. So I can't help you, except to state what didn't work for me.

This is the first time I ever had to use a regulator(before, I didnt know I needed one). For an adjustable 1.5-2 psi the Holley 12-804 was about the only choice. I pressure tested and adjusted mine and am ready to start using soon. Easy to take apart. Made in China but pretty nice. Some folks say you can mount in any position or angle, I dont know. The max inlet pressure is kinda low so I wouldnt recommend a large pump.
