cc/min to lb/hr conversion?

hey guys, im trying to find a 430cc/min fuel injector. the closest i can find is a 440 at rc eng. id like to save some bucks and find something close that goes on a car so i can pick it up in a junkyard or something. anyways, i looked on google to find the conversion formula from cc/min to lb/hr. i got two different formulas. can anybody give me the formula with proof that it is correct? i really dont wanna be guessing on any of this.

1 cc/min = 0.01585 gal/hour

1 gal gas = 6 lbs

1 cc/min = 0.0951 lb/hour

430 cc/min = 40.89 lb/hour

Do you know how to do conversions yourself? It's easier than it looks. You don't just go from cc/min directly to lbs/hr. Take it a step at a time: cc to ml, ml to l, l to gal, gal to lbs (in this case for fuel, so 6 lbs/gal). Then on the bottom: mins to hrs

Multiply everything on top, then multiply everything on bottom. Divide the bottom into the top and voila: 430 cc/min=40.86 lbs/hr
