If your asking me? Depends on what you are after?

The set up I’ve gone for...... FI tank wth internal swirl pot, 12mm ID outlet from the tank gravity feeding a Bosch 044 pump with an 8mm outlet to the fuel rail.

Pump was originally mounted to the top bar of the front beam using welded brackets. But is unique now. Not the best position as I fear it gets hot from hot air drawn from the radiator.

However, originally in my carb days, I had a fasset fuel pump screwed to the top part of the beam. 8mm inlet and outlet I believe with a switch 12v live. Its a good idea to develop the mounting in an effort to reduce the fuel pump noise. Perhaps rear mounting it or go the whole hog and develop an internal pump set up.

I've got the rotary pump in the pic, and was looking for suggestions on how to mount it in the restricted space under the tank.
