I thought they all had mechanical pumps originally but could be wrong
On later cars the electronic pump is mounted on rear substrate
My pup has a spinning engine and the bed and sides are lined out with checker plate
So I cut out an oval and mounted it behind that
Will try and get you a pic

Originals would have been electric on the subframe like my old MK 1 van. I moved it from there when it needed replacing due to corrosion.

The mechanical pump appeared later, when the electric pumps had been found to be too troublesome in their exposed location. Fortunately the A series block was used on various cars so it had a blanking plate and cam lobe, so the change was trivial.

But the Somerford web site will doubtless show exactly what was used when, and the bracket that was used to mount the pump to the subframe, which should still have the fixing holes, even on later models.

I would suggest putting it somewhere that keeps you happy about it being separated from the elements, or fit a mechanical pump.

I have a mechanical one on my pick up. I try to avoid adding any electrical items to my minis; it is something else to go wrong.
