Question Yanmar YSB Electric Fuel Pump

I have a Yanmar YSB 12 diesel engine, which is fitted with what appears to be an electric fuel lift pump. They manual I have shows a mechanical unit.

Can anyone shed any light on this for me.

The mechanical fuel pump probably gave up the ghost in a past life...and the previous owner was too cheap to buy a new one and fix it correctly

Have a 12v electric lift pump on my yanmar 3gm30f even though the factory one works well. Was installed by the previous owner/installer.

Works quite well. Awesome when time comes to bleed the system
