fuel cell/fuel pump

So, I've finally got the CJ-5 stretched and it's almost time to install the fuel cell. I'm assuming I can use the stock mechanical fuel pump?? Or should I use an electric pump? I've also been told you can use the mechanical with an electric pump inline. Any suggestions would be great. The motor....AMC 401.

I've seen a two mechanical pumps take a dump and leave people stranded (although not AMC V8's), go with a electric or at least an electric back up that can handle the pressure/volume required.
