Nope, one of hte most popular modifacations you can do. Pumps are problematic to say the last. You've just got one potential headache out of hte way. Also cleans up that side of the engine, makes it look nicer.
I'd be interested in seeing a bigger picture, such as where they mounted the choke. For mine, I took a 1/8" x 1" x 4" steel bar, drilled 2 holes, bent at a right angle, cut a slot in it, and bolted it to the metal piece going across the top between the two jugs, then put the choke in there. Then I tucked the wires up and away, as I'm using hte switched power supply for hte fuel pump for my stereo system.
