Snicker, I shall remember all your instructions when I learn how to post my very own first little picture.....

And, now I will teach you how to install a fuel pump. It will be written in invisible ink so get out your magic potent;

You put your dandy vintage Bendix (aircraft) electric fuel pump right next to the gas tank at the rear of the car - mount it to the underbody using large washers and neoprene washers to dampen any vibes - use Loctite Blue on threads of nuts and bolts - not Loctite Red - Red requires heat to get the fasteners apart - not too smart around fuel lines or gas tanks

Use Airquipt safety fittings and clamps and aircraft spec flexible hose - I usually put larger tri-layer AC hose over those flex fuel lines between connections to avoid and leaks caused by a rocks or road debris flying up and hitting the flexible fuel lines

A good tip up front for transmission cooler lines too - steel, cooper, brass, or flexible

Unlike most posted images - the fuel pump need not be centered

While you are back there you might as well move your battery from under the hood (usually next to a hot radiator) to the right rear corner of your trunk in a vented marine battery box bolted properly to the trunk floor

Battery cable back up to the engine and starter must be large diameter cable with good thick insulation and inner copper wires should be made of small twisted wires - Cable must be run and fastened close to the frame or up inside the vehicle

Modifying carbs, ignition, manifolds, and cylinder heads is an extra credit course
