Hi Jared. I have a 69 Notchback up in Canada (Winnipeg). I couldn’t find a fuel pump last year and ended up using a generic pump from Napa I believe. It seems to be working. 

Did you ever find a source for one? I couldn’t. 

Also, should the fuel pump turn off after a few seconds when the key is turned on (but not started?) My pump keeps running.
