I don't know if you got a response to your question, so here goes. The type of fuel pump depends on the engine. If it is fuel injected, it will normally need an electric pump. That is due to the need to have the pressure heald constant. As far as the location on the fuel lines on the tank, it won't matter as far as what type of pump you use.

Pickup trucks had a similar arrangement for years concerning tank and line location. The manual pump worked well with a carburetor(s).

Ridener:

I've got a Model A coupe myself with the same setup (small tank behind the seat with a top/drawing line) and my manual pump (carbureated 305) has worked fine for years, but I'd suggest you get the tank out of the cab altogether and maybe look at the rear mounting '32 type types that fit in between the frame rails. It opens up alot of space in the cab of the car and usually allows you to put a little larger tank on.

Another reason I'd urge you to get your tank outta the cab is because mine ride was hit and my tank (an older Chevrolet tank)cracked enough to leak slightly into the floor of my coupe. Notwithstanding that pesky electical wire thing, the coupe smelled of gasoline like crazy till I pulled the tank (pinhole crack-enough to cause trouble). Ruined my carpet.

Keep 'em running, but keep 'em safe first.
