Have a 351M in my 53 Ford and am using an electric pump ( stock location blocked off). Had a weird noise up front a while back and found the cam gear retaning bolt had backed out enough to hit the timing cover plate, not enough to let the gear to dissengage from the locating pin on the cam, but just enough to let the pump excentric and bolt to make a pingy, rattley noise that drove me nuts looking for it. Otherwise the car ran fine.
