Failing the doorstep

well, the dream is over.
Driving home yesterday and the car was noticeably down on power, running lumpily, it developed a rattle from the top end and then the oil pressure light came on.
I managed 6000 miles in her, for a total outlay (including purchase price of £227. Hard to grumble, and I'll be on the look out for another one (probably a better one!) later this year.
Final question, she has half a tank of fuel in her. Searching the forum shows that the best way to get this out is to bridge the fuel pump relay. I'm guessing that a hose/pipe needs to come off the engine somewhere (so you can fill your cans), which hose/pipe would this be & where can I find it?
Oh, and for sale; 156 Alfa Romeo, may need some engine work... :-)
