Lift pump or injection pump? Lift: yes. Injection: no.

Re: inline electric fuel pump ???

I guess that I am missing something in this thread...

I understand that the OP would like to REMOVE the electric fuel pump...

I have (only) an electric fuel pump on my M25. I would not go to a mechanical, cam-driven (a-la Yanmar) pump for any reason.

If the OP is asking if they can remove the mechanical pump and replace with an electric, then the answer is yes.
