No, i'm not trying to imply that i think elec pumps are bad. It's just that i think i would prefer to use a mechanical just to keep things simple and straightfoward since i want to stick with carbs.
i've got nothing against electric pumps and really when you think about it and elec pump may be just as simple and as reliable as a mechanical. But in my personal case right now using an electric would involve wiring and an external powersource, which mentally, to me, makes it more complicated.
Now, if i was going with Fuel injection (which i'm not against either, just not now) then yes, of course i would need to go electric. And in that case, Carter has my vote.
