Electronic fuel pump

Where can I find info on converting a flathead 239 to an electronic fuel pump?

Steve_B is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I have a electric pump fitted in line by a previous owner

If you are running a original carb' you will need to drop the pressure to 4psi any carb shop should be able to supply a pressure reducer

The previous owner just removed the mechanical pump and push rod and made a cover plate for the hole

I have read discussions on other lists about losing oil pressure when removing the push rod but my engine runs with good oil pressure and no push rod

Hope this helps
