I bet you can easily put the pump in the tank, I'd be surprised if one from a gasser didn't drop right in.  (Assuming the gassers had lift pumps.)  The 4wd may well also drop in.

Making it run might be a bit of a challenge, since the wiring may not exist.  Or, VW may have used the same harness with the sending unit's wiring, which would mean you'd only need to install a relay or something like that.

But my Cabriolet I converted had a lift pump, and I left it intact.  It was very nice to have it when I changed a filter or otherwise opened the fuel system to prime everything.  Also I think a bit of pressure prevented bubbles in the line.  

I have no idea if any of that was helpful at all... :0
