The guys are right, an electric pump won't suck fuel very far, it wants to push, not pull.

I generally use mechanical pumps unless there's some reason I can't. I have 30,000+ KM on the mechanical pump on my 46 and it's the pump that was on the 70,000 KM engine when I got it, not a single problem. I've had to replace one mechanical pump on the side of the road in another vehicle on a trip and a friends pump in a parking lot on a trip. Easy and quick to change, much simpler typically.

Crate,
If a thief is intent on stealing your ride it's pretty hard to stop them but not supplying elec to the pump and/or coil will probably slow a quickie theft down. I use multiple deterrents on my cars!

Always a good mechanical pump whenever possible! Most electric pumps are Chinese junk, no matter where they are "assembled". I've never had a mechanical pump that I installed let me down. I also don't care for the noise of an electric, just doesn't fit the old car vibe IMO.
