I hate to be a Debbie Downer here, but I'll share this.  

We haven't used the Carter fuel pump in many years, so things may have changed, BUT we had a 100% failure rate with Carter pumps within the first few years in service.  This included a few private labeled carter pumps (CB brand internally regulated was carter at this time).  Anyway, every single one of them eventually lost its ability to regulate pressure and defaults to roughly 9lbs.  When this happens everything works OK at partial to full throttle, but at idle the cars drown and sitting still they flood completely and die...  Not a big deal if you catch it early, but as you all probably know, a flood carb and a backfire can mean a call to the fire department and that ain't good....
