Default blew my fuel pump.. Mechanical or electric

I blew my fuel pump this morning.. I took it off the motor and the insides were trashed. Should I replace it with an electric or put a new mechanical in there? I hear an electric makes the webers easier to tune.

Personally, I like an electric fuel pump.

I'm starting to lean that way. The vendor I got my webers from recommends the Carter P4070 for the webers. I wonder how noisy it is....

The set up on my '69 Mustang is a stock type fuel tank fitted with a sump kit. Custom fabricated Vent tube allows the car to be rolled without losing fuel. (basically we made the stock tank into a fuel cell) Not planning on a roll but like to be prepared. Electric pump in the rear to push the fuel rather then pull it to the carbs. 1/2" line feeds twin 750 Holleys. I'm not familiar with the Carter P4070. When I have questions like that I call the techs at Summit. They deal with a multitude of manufacturers & can answer questions like that.

If you go with an electric, invest in an inertia type cut off switch...shuts fuel off if you roll or get hit...easy to reset.

Im not a real fan of electric pumps - they tend to fail at the worst of times.

I treated my org. Carter X- Pump to a rebuild kit many years back - still working great.

I also like the mecanicals, because the higher the rpm the more volume they deliver.

Any good mecanical Fuel pump should be supply the necesary volume - unless you are all out drag racing.

With Webers a pressure regulator should be considered a must.
