1969 GTO Fuel Tank

I have a leak between the filler neck and the tank in my car and have decided to replace the tank. I was wondering if anyone had installed the in-tank fuel pump/ sending unit?

I installed a Painless wiring harness and the fuel pump wire is in the vicinity and just needs the fuse installed to make it hot.

I have some questions, is it a simple conversion? Did you install a regulator before the carburetor? Which brand is recommended and which would you avoid?

I am looking for advice before I make this change, my Edelbrock mechanical fuel pump is only 2 years old, so a new tank/sending unit eliminates the leak.

Thanks
Marty
