I got most of my stuff from Original Parts Group and National Parts Depot at least the stuff that is factory original. I had a 77 T/A in high school and I remember a place called Paddock that had and entire catalog for TA but I think they were run out of biz by the competition.

I dont know how it is on other cars but ive got 2 ford pintos with electric pumps on them and once i had a fuel line come loose up front and quite a bit of fuel was leaking out of it, all the way at the front. That indicates that gravity feeds the pretty well up to the front and that it only needs the pump to push it up to the carb. I think my case the pump would probably be fine up front.

But, not all cars may have any gravity flow up front. I know my pickup sure doesnt..

Yea i took the rubber line from the hard line to the mech pump off and there is no gravity flow at all. I ended up mounting it in the back near the tank and it seems to be working good.
