Fuel pump died today

Man, I was having a good vacation. Just got back from the mountains yesterday, went for a drive today, everything was good. Then argghhh, no fuel. Time for a tow truck.

Anyways, I have a 2.7 with PMOs, a Holley Red fuel pump (only a couple of years old), the PMO pressure regulator with return lines hooked up.
I think the Holley Red puts out 8 psi, but I have it regulated down to a little over 3.5.
It is mounted in the smugglers box. It has a funky burnt electrical smell and is only making a few struggling noises. it is definitely not pumping anymore.
I have it disconnected at the fuse panel, so it is receiving no power, for safety.

I need to replace it, I don't think I am going to get another Holley Red, I am not pleased with this one.
I hear the Pierburg is good.
What about the Hardi? It is a little more expensive, but is an OEM part.
Any other suggestions? What about location or anything else since I am in there?

Thanks.

I studied a lot of thread here when I was building my car.

I ended up buying a Pierburg from Pelican, and then mounting it out in the open for better cooling as others suggested. It now is strapped to the front suspension crossmember.

Wayner, I am thinking about relocating mine in the same spot as you, I never really liked the smugglers box location. It's kind of noisy.
I may put the battery there instead.
Why did you pick the Pierburg instead of the Hardi? I read a lot of threads too, and it seems that the Pierburg is a popular choice.
I didn't even know about the Hardi until I looked in the fuel pump section, in the new parts for sale for carbed cars.

Put it back to where it used to be.....under the tank above the skid plate. Pump for carbs should be cheap....compared to a CIS pump.

PMO makes or has someone make for them a nice one.

Mine used to be in the back, Joe. I moved it up front.

My 83 has it there.....maybe they did something right. My 70 had it in the rear wheel well.
