Neil, if it has the extension pieces on both ends.
with a threaded hole let me know, I'd be interested ( maybe send a photo if you can ). That's the type of rear center bumper section I have on my 2000. There is a protrusion at each end, with a threaded hole for a bolt. Well, I can understand about the electric fuel pump. I bought a 2002 many years ago, a 1971, and the prior owner put an electric fuel pump on it, mounted in the trunk; I would have stayed with the mechanical, myself, the car still had the one barrel Solex on it, don't get why he put in an electric fuel pump. Well, something has to work then if you stay with the mechanical, maybe Carl also has the Bavaria type,
