around 2 1/2 psi the carbys float closes off the fuel supply the pressure rises and the pump stops, volume is more important then pressure to keep the carbys float chambers full.

I have a 420 38 MTD, runs fine for a while then stops.

I suspect that you have a problem coil /ignition system that is failing when it gets hot
if it runs for a while , I would be leaving the carby last as it is working for a while and that is not a carby problem indication

1984. Why does it run fine during cold weather and sputter when it is warm and I punch the gas pedal?

could be low float level, low pump pressure/supply
blocked fuel filter
when cold the engine is running on choke setting which draws more fuel from the carby
when it is warm the choke is off and if you have a flat spot ( (sputter) , that indicates a lack of fuel or maybe a bad accelerator pump or power valve
if the carby is a holley then replace the power valve and overhaul the accelerator pump.

1969 Camaro Small Block fuel pump. What is the pressure for a stock fuel pump?

most mechanical pumps will run at 8 psi. Pressure is dependant on volume flow so if the carby is starving for fuel , check for filter blockage ( also at needle and seat entrance), pump stroke ( thickness of blocks under mount on engine)

Carburettor on volkswagen golf 2000 model 1600 leaks petrol

fuel leaks from a carby when the fuel pump is working indicates a stuck or faulty needle and seat assembly in the carby allowing the bowl to over flow . check the fuel pump pressure is not excessive and remove the needle and seat assy and check needle for cracked rubber around needle or something as simple as a hair stopping the needle from seating properly

1984 nissan 4x4 truck

hi if thats the case it is afuel problem

# replace fuel filter
# remove fuel from pump the one that goes back to the pump remove fuel cap blow threw with compressed air to make sure there is no blockages
# if u can get a fuel pressure gauge check fuel pressure it should be about 4-6 psi
# on the carby fuel where it connects to the carby there should be a bolt take it of and from memory there is a little screen filter check if its blocked and clean blow air into the carby fuel inlet
# on the bottom of carby body midway is 2 nuts facing down one has the main jey in it when u take this off all the fuel should come out of the carby place air nozzle in hole and hit it with high pressure to clear

see how u go mate
