If you have to go with over the counter mechanical fuel pump the GMB is made in Taiwan and are good. The Delphi and Carter are now made in China and are junk. LRDaum

The only thing I would say is try and get that sock positioned on the bottom of the tank and use a long sock to get as much coverage as you can.

Ok. I'm glad you told me this. This already sounds like the best solution. 

Thanks!

Ohhh... Ok... So you're saying if I get the Holley drop in... To switch to the low pressure pump and if/when I go to fuel injection... Then swap out the pump to the higher pressure unit... That sounds pretty easy... 

Any possible hiccups I should be aware of???

No. Two of the wires are for the pump and the other two are for the fuel level. You would hook your sending unit wire to one of them and the other is a ground. If you were to go that route, you would want to switch the low pressure pump that I showed earlier to use with a carb.

I just seen this in another post.

It seems that Holley part number 12-307 for a Jeep CJ fuel tank fits an AMC1 type fuel tank.

Apparently you missed what I wrote in one of the recent posts.... There's no question about whether or not the RobbMC pump is a quality part for me... it's just that now I'm looking for a dual purpose solution so I can upgrade to fuel injection later. It makes no sense for me to buy a carb only solution or that's wasted money.

The MF0016 is for the 232/258 motor.

I was thinking about getting the RobbMC one, myself. Definitely going that route after reading through everything.
