Looks like the same one I bought from my local parts store a while back. Regular stock replacement Carter fuel pump, even though they talk it up a little. My parts store pumps seem to work well enough for me. That one should too.
Carter makes a great standard pump and if it fits your budget, well thats all the better. Holley makes an inexpensive pump (yeah its chrome) and I used one of them for years without fail. I recently switched to a billet Holley Ultra HP pump. I only switched because I liked the look, not out of need to replace the old pump.
I personally don't care to run aluminum fuel line. Te easy route is to just order the "correct" prefabricated fuel line from any number of Mustang parts vendors. Difficult stuff to pack for shipping so don't be surprised if it looks mangled when you get it. I've yet to have a problem straightening any back out just fine. I'm real big on doing everything myself but those prebent and flared lines are really nice and easy to use.
If you want to make your own, every parts store has a rack somewhere in the back stocked with lengths of pre-flared steel brake and fuel lines. Sucks to have to cut off a perfectly good flare off one end because they never seem to be the length you need. Usually they are 3, 4, 6, and 8 foot lengths.
Good question Dan. I am curious about the rubber connection between the tank and fuel line running up to the engine. It seems to me that the tank and chassis are stiffly connected and no vibration isolation is needed. Is it possible that the rubber hose section was strictly for ease of manufacture?
I bent up my own 3/8" aluminum fuel line and ran it from a section of -6 AN hose to a tube nut and flared the end. It runs along the frame member then along the sub-frame connector, through the front torque box and ends at a fuel filter in the wheelwell. From there I have a short section of -6 AN to the fuel pump and then to aluminum hard line to the carb. This will all be swapped out this winter with a Glenn's Performance sumped tank to two -10 lines that connect to a 100 micron fuel filter and then run -8 up to the fuel pump and then -8 to the carb. I was running out of fuel coming hard out of turn 11 at Sears Point and it was missing badly over 5,000 rpm. Hopefully this new fuel system will correct that.
