electric fuel pumps on carburator?

is it ok to use electric fuel pumps on a carburator? i have a 9psi electric fuel pump which runs when the keys on, but my carb drips petrol when sitting is it because the fuel pump is constantly pushing fuel into the carby even when its full and theres no return line for the excess fuel.

is it better to get a mechanical fuel pump and disconnect the electric one or not?

its a ford 460 with a 750holley carburator in an xj6 jaguar

could someone give me some ideas on what to do or if its fine as it is? car runs fine jst not sure if its bad for me to have an electrical fuel pump
