Question What is the BEST external electric fuel pump?

Okay, I know that's a very open ended question but I'd like some opinions for a good pump for my old Willys.

I had a YJ for a while that the PO had converted to fuel injection and I was constantly having fuel pump problems. Now, with my Willys, and it's after market engine, I have to use an electric fuel pump and it's giving me problems.

I've read enough threads to know that often people don't do their homework when asking a question. I've done my homework and know that the big thing is that they need to be kept cool. Ideally, they should be inside the tank but that's not an option with a 71-year old Jeep. Also, they are better at pushing rather than pulling the fuel so should be located close to the tank. I have it just a few inches from the tank but it's still giving me problems.

I'm searching the interwebs but thought I'd throw this onto the forum to see if anyone has any thoughts or experiance in this. I wish I could say that money is no matter (it ALWAYS matters) but I'm interested in input in all price ranges. Can you provide any insight I haven't thought of?

I clicked on the "buy now" button to try to see the prices but it says the link is broken. Might be the firewall on my office computer so I'll try again when I get home.

Lots of their gear makes it into race vehicles of all types, but if you want the best pump that will stand up to heat, vibration, high flow rates, and carbs/fuel injection, then Aeromotive is it.
