I think its carb dependant -- in other words an electric would over come the carbs design and flood out -- the pulsed fuel pumps pressure up and give one shot at a time to keep fuel lines primed,(working in tandem with fuel bulb check valve) a pump would be constantly putting pressure on the line you could probably make one work if you could put it on a one shot timer.

my onan generator on my motorhome has basically the same carb and it has an electric fuel pump on it.

The major difference being that its matched by the governor control in regulating fuel and needs no fuel stop or a primer bulb.

Positive pressure on a diaphragm system will 100% of the time blow your powerhead. Just to name a few ways; the pressure will cause a carb needle to stick and in you case no fuel no oil while the others are working makes a bad situation, the g ball needs the crank case pressure to oil it's self properly and with out it it will run dry. Many other reasons but it will not work.
