 Jeff, are you perhaps referring to such an item sold as a "competition" part and/or recommended for competition use in the Prep Manuals? If so, perhaps it was a Bendix pump? That's what is in the trunk of my ( now long-dormant) Spitfire 4 ex-GP turned autocrosser, said car having been built probably in the late 1960s and pretty much as a textbook example of the Spitfire Competition Preparation Manual.

Just a thought!

Does anyone know the manufacturer and model number of the optional electric fuel
pump Triumph sold for the TR4? And any thoughts on how crazy it would be to find
and fit one? I care too much about (the appearance of) originality to go with a
modern unit. A vintage one would be fun, and I’m hoping it might help with
cold-starting woes. If I’ve not run the car for a couple of days, it takes a
very long time for it to turn over, and it sounds to me like it’s because it
takes a long time to get fuel to the carbs. Once it’s running, it’s fine. And
starting up after a day or two doesn’t take nearly as long.
