Does sound like the pump but I would first check the fuel filter, same symptoms. 

Just saw a long thread here on electric fuel pumps, maybe you can see it in the archives.   Lots of opinions but I think general consensus is to mount it below the tank level, be it at the rear or in the engine bay.   I like the Facet type pump just fine but some think it too loud. (NFI)

My Triumph TR4-A starts fine when I pump the fuel pump a few times and seems to run fine for awhile. After about 2-3 miles it starts chugging and tries to kill. I stop open the hood and pump the fuel pump about 20 times and get in and drive for about 1/2 to 1 mile and it chugs again It takes awhile to get back home this way. I'm thinking of installing an electric fuel pump. Wondering which brand to buy? Some say they pull and push so it doesn't matter where you mount them. I've read where you should mount them close to the tank. It looks like some mount in place of the existing pump as a replacement and other are in combination with the manual pump. Help!!
