which electric fuel pump to use?
Vehicle is a '57 Chevy Suburban; engine is a '75 Chevy 250ci inline 6; intake is Clifford manifold with OEM TBI (from an Astro van).
My question is which fuel pump to use? I want to mount it inline, not intank.
Some guys on another forum recommend fuel pump from Ford from the '80s, but these trucks have 2 fuel pumps, electric intank and electric inline, so I wonder if the inline alone would be good enough...
I prefer to use OEM stuff as much as possible, for reliability and ease a of maintenance.

The bosch pump that came in the fuel injected VW bugs, busses, and early vanagons is pretty universal, and can easily push out 45-60psi as the sole pump on the line. They are normally regulated down to about 35psi. The only bad part is they run about $200, twice the price of the previous option from Jegs.
