Electric Fuel pump - what do you use?

    My P6b has the factory air-con and hence an electric fuel pump. At some point in it's life that's been replaced with a carter fuel pump in the engine bay. As I'm resurrecting Reg I've found it's stuffed. I've been down the fuel pump rabbit-hole and back - what make/model is preferred by the gurus here?

    I can't speak for the gurus. I fitted a Facet pump under the tank at the back of the car. The petrol reserve tap was relocated there too. Needed a longer cable. The pump is fairly noisy but when the V8 comes to life it easily drowns out the pump noise. I'm perfectly happy with the set-up after six years of regular use. Hopefully writing this won't have jinxed me!
    Is your car a US export model or a UK car with aircon?

    It's a UK car with Aircon, exported to Oz. :)
    Just got word from previous owner he's found a Carter in the shed he had put aside to fix it. Winning!!
