If you do not mind the expense I would buy the SU pump with the digital
internals intended for the MGB (washes mouth out with soap) and retain
the mechanical pump but disconnected from a fuel supply, it is not
needed. This would be short pull, long push
I have not actually tried it but it may be possible to mount the pump
next to the tank behind the backboard.
As the pump would not be seen perhaps I would consider a Chinese solid
state pump available for 10.5 GBP. on eBay UK. A fit and forget solution
small and compact. The delivery poundage should be 4 to 6 pounds for SU
and Stromberg carbs, higher for Webers.

In the Competition Manual, Kastner says the mechanical fuel pump is just fine in terms of getting fuel to the carbs. For him, the advantage of the electric pump is that it can be installed in the trunk, keeping the fuel cooler.
