Plus 1 for the electric fuel pump. Hide it up under the car on the frame over by the battery.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Plus Plus Plus for the electric pump, but low pressure is also a key (or installation of a regulator) - I think on many of the cars I have an Airtex 6 VOLT FUEL PUMP LOW PRESSURE PRIMER PUMP OR FUEL PUMP 2.5psi-4psi

Thanks for the feedback.
I do have both a regulator and electric pump. What should the regulator be set at? Currently it is at 3.5.

That is just fine. You will want to switch the pump off with the ignition switch,
otherwise , you will forget to turn it off. I run the electric pump thru the original Fuel Pump.

Warning, Airtex has not made fuel pumps since 2020. The pumps you see on ebay that say they are airtex 2 to 4.5 lbs are not . The picture they are using on there ads is not what you get. I have ordered one from amazon, not airtex or what is pictured. That was easy to return. The next vender I asked if what I would get was exactly as in the picture and was assured it was. Same pump I got from Amazon except this took me 17 emails and three weeks to get my money back.

I have the correct Airtex pumps available they were purchased from a reliable source back in 2017. I have seven Auburns and have Airtex pumps installed on all of them.
