I have read where its a good idea to run a return line to take some of the work off the float valve.
My 1990 350 honda quad has a frame mounted lift pump to the carb.
Probably worth a try for the money.

Look for something that outputs 2 PSI (14 Kpa or 0.14 bar, give-or-take)

It is an electric fuel pump to a carborated engine.
That's what you want no?

Any aftermarket 12-volt pump made for an average small carbureted car would work. All it needs to be is about 3 pounds fuel pressure, and the flow rate would be more than sufficient. Here's a generic part, although this one is branded Holley. The unbranded ones are cheaper.

Any of these would work fine, but I would probably select the 40367 or 40352.
K&N 810400 fuel pump 1 - 2 psi and 15 gph
Facet-Purolator POSI-FLO - 60210 1 - 2.5 psi and 25 gph
Facet-Purolator Cube 40367 or 40352 1 - 2 psi and 15 gph
Facet-Purolator Cube 40163 1.5 - 2.5 psi and 17 gph

Here is an article that I wrote that might help you:

Also, here is a picture of a cube type that I installed. It is a 40163 and has worked great. You have to make a bracket out of 1/4" aluminum.

Thank you very much for the info, the picture and the article.

Do you have any idea what the max psi may be and fuel flow ?

I believe the original put out about 2.4 psi and about 14 gph. You don't want too much pressure on the float valves so I would stay under 3 psi.

1984 Honda Prelude fuel pumps on all three 1200's, they work great.

Made a short wiring harness, to plug & play with the stock wiring.

Have seen them used on 1100's as well
