AAHh yes...... the on line manual that says 30psi oops you are right, my bad!
Yes the fuel pressure regulator is adjustable via a screw below the bowl, (although should not be required) and he did unscrew it 3 turns.

I dont know how this will affect the fuel pressure at full throttle, as my limited understanding suggests fuel flow / volume will be the issue. If there is insufficient fuel flow then the pressure may be acceptable at low - medium revs but when full throttle is called for, the lack of flow will starve the engine for fuel and result in a low pressure reading. This is why I am installing a fuel pressure guage.

Regardless I will install guage and measure... Will let you know
