I'm not sure I understand the problem, Dust.

The pumps I got from Tracy have check valves built in - ie they can't back-flow. Most people use two of these in parallel. The fuel pressure is controlled by a manually adjustable regulator between the rail and the return. Mine's set at about 43 PSI when the engine is off. The Mazda's use manifold pressure to control the regulator.

Does this help, or am I talking about something completely different?

Series? Why? I havent heard of it being done, but it would probably work. Tracy would know the gph rating. Its more than enough for the power you or I will produce.

My main pump is engine driven, it would be a pain o plumb parallel, much easier in series. Not worried about quantity, just concerned about over-quantity

Ah Yes, Jim Sower has the same thing with his Lycoming. I think he recently bought a pump from Tracy. Maybe, when he gets his engine started again, he can tell you how well the mechanical pulls through the electric.

WELDON, weldon pump is the pump, finally found the pump mfg. and they referred me to www.aerospares.com, Ean

He was the same guy i talked to two or so years ago, even sent me the same fax of the pump that i had lost. they are in canada ad i remembered talkin to someone in canada.

I also emailed Buly to get his input and he used the exact same one.

24V, 45PSI, 30 GPH , sucks 26 inches dry, made for pass through when not in use and rated for continuos duty.

Meets all the specs that i need

He even advised me on how to install to prevent cavitation, life is good, hard to find a properly sized pump, hot rod and marine ones simply pump too much, 50, 60, 70 GPH snd they would create too much heat and draw extra power. In this case, bigger is not better, the right size is better

Now i can plumb from the tanks to the fire wall, WAHHOO
