Many thanks to mr rhubarb, c80kw and scrgdk for taking the time to reply which is most helpful.
There seems to be a general consensus as to the type of pump and fitting location, the detail about alfabb was also useful so will note this reference.
As with all new delights they take time to get used to and my initial problem was getting the engine to start although I was influenced by the previous owner who thought it might be a good idea to solve this problem especially if the car had not been started for a while.
However, having spoken to my local classic car specialist, charging the battery, changing the plugs and using full choke without touching the accelerator pedal it now starts on the first turn of the key even after a few days of not starting up.
Will monitor the situation and if the problem reappears when very damp and extremely cold shall give this mod active consideration. You have been very helpful, thank you.
