Has anyone a suggestion for a suitable electric fuel pump?

Presumably the opening for the mechanical pump will just need blanking off?

Any views?

I the same line of thought apart from the german v6 pumps what other cars could yield a suitible mecanical fuel pump? Considered for the standard carb setup...

It is great to be back...
