I want to put an electric fuel pump on my 1959 4100 flatbed Viking with a 235 engine. Doe anyone know the proper pump (psi?) to use? Thanks

Might want to tell me to MYOB, but why put an electric pump on?

I'v seen it done, and also seen the results of leaky aftermarket pumps, a pump running when the engine is not, as in the ignition left on and the crankcase filled with fuel, fuel pumped out on a hot manifold, even worse...

Modern engines have the proper controls to prevent this. Unless you're controling the pump with this circuity, could be asking for trouble!

Steve, you have a good point. I might just consider replacing the mechanical pump to avoid any problems. Thaks for the advice.

I agree with you that a circuit to shut it down if the engine stalls is a good idea. It's not rocket surgery to install a simple oil pressure switch circuit..

Many new generic pumps come with a wiring diagram and parts list that makes installing such a system as easy as possible..

I believe the original stovebolt fuel pressure "spec" was 3.5 PSI, so chose an low-pressure electric pump not too much over that.
