Have you considered replacing or making a new diaphram for the fuel pump
? That is if you can take it apart.
Also, if you are going to use a gravity feed system, unless your fuel
bowl float system is in really good condition,,i would mount the tank so the base was just inline with the base on the carburetor, to prevent flooding.
Replacing the fuel pump is always the best option...good luck..

This is NOT on a boat
. I am posting
this here because I lurk everyday and have seen the amount of combined knowledge their is on this site and am sure somebody can help lead me in the right direction. This is a back up power source for my office/warehouse.
I hope nobody gets mad for asking a question not directly related to boats.
Thanks in advance,
