Default Vapour Lock in T3

After running around town in 43 Deg C temps the T3 refused to restart. Turns
out to be Vapour Lock due to heat. Car was
got going by pressurising fuel tank. It occurred to me though that if the
mechanical fuel pump was replaced by an electric one at front of car
the problem would be solved. Easier to push cool petrol through lines than
suck vapour through. Any thoughts?
Cheers
