I put a "service loop" in the hose before and after the pump, which makes the vice grip clamp-off easier. All tucked up inside the frame rail just in front of the rear axle. Rather do that than add valves which are another potential source of a leak.

I am going to go back and rubber mount the pump because the constant buzzing annoys me. Back in the day I used a Bendix electric fuel pump mounted on the firewall of my '35 coupe. It clattered, but shut off when the pressure came up. The gas gauge on that car never worked, so constant pump clatter was a sure sign that I had pushed my out-of-gas estimate too far.
