OK, I have my tank in and I am ready to start running my fuel line. My question is this...if I'm going with a mechanical fuel pump, what pick-up do I need, and what are those other holes in the tank for, I know one is for the sending unit, but what's the other one for? And lastly whats the best material to use for the fuel line? I picked up my fuel filter, just one from Advance Auto Parts, is there a better one I should consider?
Thanks for all the help.

As far as the fuel line, most of us use 3/8" line run along the drivers side 4" frame for carbed mechanical fuel pump applications. There are a number of different materials used, basically either flex or rigid. I used steel tubing, difficult to bend but strong and resistant to road damage. I doubt one approach is better than another, go with what feels right to you.
