why keep the original pump?

It only heats up the fuel at this point. The Sonett has a short piece of fuel line beside the transmission near the firewall. Go from this connection with a steel line up the right side of the engine and into the carb. Mount it away from any heat producers (engine block, coolant lines, exhaust pipe) Use as little rubber hose as possible, it only heat soaks the fuel more. Hook up a switch on the dash to turn off the electric pump. In warm weather shut off the pump a few seconds before shutting down the engine so that the carb is emptied of fuel that would otherwise boil over and flood the engine. Before starting turn on the pump to prime the system. This solution has worked well for me in the past. Good luck!
