Converting from mechanical fuel pump to electric??

I was looking at for a fuel pump because mine isnt pumping gas very well. So bad right now that my car wont start. I saw a mechanical one for the same price as an electric one. How hard would it be for me to convert to electric fuel pump or is it even worth the time? HAs anyone else done this? By the way the car is a 67 250s carburated. Thanks guys!!

Just get a replacement mechanical fuel pump. It's easier than converting to electric. You would have to find one, mount in the rear area, find a proper shield for it, run a wire and then make a fuel pump block off plate.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
