Anybody know of a methanol Compatible mechanical fuel pump

Anybody know of a mechanical fuel pump for a Fe that’s compatible with methanol?

Think your going to be stuck with a pricey, belt-driven pump to run methanol. A few sites do offer alky and methanol safe std. type pumps (i.e. bolt-on to the OEM block pump flange) but only for, of course, small block Chevys. You've seen no doubt this kind of pump as exampled below. That or maybe contact the F.I. experts at Kinsler for ideas.

A standard 'bolt-on' type mechanical pump might run into trouble supplying the volume of methanol necessary. Methanol can be run as rich as a 3.5:1 mix with air and stoichiometric is 6.45 with methanol. I have had good luck using an electric pump with the right size hoses.

The mechanical standard type pump is just there for redundancy... in case the electric pump craps out at a inconvenient time, which is always the case.  A Drag week type event is still on my bucket list. I want a built in backup on everything I can think of failing to save time and a possible DNF. I’m looking at belt driven pumps also...  thanks

The mistress has already basically tied its best ever pass on race gas with the methanol change over, runs cooler, almost too cool this time of year, took a bunch of rear gear away also, so I know the 520 is making a bunch more torque. All this while starving for fuel, so I’m hoping there’s a tenth or three left in it yet.
