If you mounted the tank higher than the carb, you shouldn't need a pump...It should work from gravity feed....There are several people that have went the gravity feed route with good results...I am sure someone can help....I think the needle valve or something needs to be changed in the carb,but not totally sure about that......

would of like to mount inside cage but cooling system and pump in way as we speak. I have the issue of  when I fill the alum tank it pushes its way back to the origanal tank and over flows out by the gravity effect (tank being hirer than orig.) I  will put in a cock pit to use the aluminum one for a reserve
