i agree, you need flow, not pressure. since the top of the tank is about 24 inches above the carburetor, static pressure wil be 1 psi with the tank full, and less wiht it 1/2 full. dont wory about the pressure, just get a good flow.

I have no clue as to the actual "PSI" but it will increase if you crank the engine as I did this on my Super C and could see the fuel through the sediment bowl go from a slight trickle to almost full flow, real quick.

you are right that as you draw the fuel thru the line the FLOW will ncrease drastically, but the PRESSURE will remain constant at less than 1 psi. That is determined by the height of the tank above the carburetor.
