Bagheera X 1980 + 7 Citroën

I am restoring the engine for my Bagh X 1980, from this:





to this:





I have not yet  restored the original fuel pump, and I don´t know if I should.
Would it be better to install an electric fuel pump, and if so, where?
How do I plug the original pump?
I would appreciate any ideas!
Thanks!

Lasse

The Baggy fuel pumps are generally reliable so I would use the original.

Well. µ
I just went to have a look at my 2 project engines (twice 1.7 16V) and µ
 1) the old design is a sofabex 3114 (all aluminium, dismontable°) There must be yet another all aluminium reference
2) The black plastic body one is also a Sofabex, no ref number on it. But their web site is listing the ref number 8114 (and a different one for the Murena,  Huh)

Thank you all! I think I will stick to a mechanical pump Smiley

The pump I have is a Sofabex with three pipes and the ref number 909S.
