Great that this is coming along. (love the mudguards)
You obviously have experiance from the other car, but seeing the tank, if its not foam filled you will need a swirl pot and then as Jon says just a Walbro 255 pump 
All the best Clive

You tank the hole fuel pot out so internal reg and filter remain..that can be seperated to allow suction on bottom tank by lengthing with piece of alloy or suchlike. Electrical wires lenthen and pipe to outlet .
Tricky bit is cutting whole and welding on studs and making a gasket. Holes can be drilled for said studs on outside rim of fuel pot.

so you drilled new holes in the top flange of the pump and bolted it to tank ?  thats what i was wondering about or whether i had to use the screw down collar which would mean i had to make  up a new screw thread to weld onto tank
