electric fuel pump on older car (w115)

Seems to take forever to get my 1972 220 mechanical fuel pump to get enough fuel the carb to start after it sits for a couple of days that you nearly kill the battery trying to get it to start.

I'm sure its been done, has anyone here hooked up universal inline electric fuel pump instead of the mechanical pump? I was looking for some tips as to where you mounted the pump, where you pulled key on hot power to switch a fuel pump relay, etc.

Just looking for some direction from those who have done it first.

My girlfriend likes to daily drive this car when its nice so it would be nice to make it easier to start in the morning.
