Ok, so I have 2 issues with the '76B - the fuel pump doesn't, and the starter. 
Addressing the former first -

The pump isn't pumping. It make a constatnt humming and ticking noise (not the 
usual tick-tick-tick). After letting
it run for 5+ minutes, it hasn't pumped any gas into the fuel filter in the 
engine compartment. It's an off-brand sort
of pump, not an original to the car. Here is what it sounds like -

New SU's from Moss are $150 or so. I know some people run generic pumps with a 
pressure regulator of some sort, from a
FLAPS. I'm interested in experiences with those sorts of pumps, since we are 
recovering from a series of money outflows
and I would rather go cheap to get the car back on the road ;-) The current 
pump in the car is an off-brand Autopulse pump -

Any thoughts are appreciated.
