    Nothing is more dependable than a mechanical fuel pump. I would have nothing else on a carburated engine.

    Mechanical. Can't agree that electrics are bad, maybe just aftermarket ones. (think of all the stock TBI trucks with over 100K on them) BUT for the hassle, mechanical. You can get them no matter where you get stuck, you don't have to cut lines, you don't have to add wires, you don't get funky noises and vibrations, etc.

    No anti-theft measures on your truck? No pity when its stolen
