Default Engine run in stand

As I have 2 e types I am rebuilding I am building an engine run in stand. I have a 4.2 engine rebuilt, my 3.8 is almost done and I have a second 3.8 that will live on the stand after I am done. But here are some pics of the stand I will build (this is another mans finished project and the stand has a lot of flexibility To that end I am away from my manuals and was going to order an electric fuel pump for this, what is the fuel pressure range for the 3.8/4.2 engines. Thanks and will post some pics!.

Rick 3 to 5 PSI will work but if on a stand why not just gravity feed it? I have a friend that got one of those IV towers from medical supply and the old glass bottles! Works fine and looks way cool!

Well I am a veterinarian and have some of those so that is a possibility!!. This design is nice in that it can be adopted to many different motors easily. Now I just need the spare time, picked up the 2x2" tubing last night and starting to layout the build.
