I believe the unit is the same as was used on carb versions of the Fiat X-1/9 but have not personally tested the validity of that reference.

If you have pulled yours, you may be able to determine the fault. If it's a leaky float, that should be easy to fix.

If any of you has some pictures of the Pantera one, or maybe a stamped part number, I could check that out. I know some people having a X-1/9, and all are memeber of a X-1/9 club so...

One the other hand, if indeed used in a X-1/9, there is quite a big chance the same one is used in other cars build by the Fiat group (Lancia/Alfa), and which is easy to check too.
The simplest answer for your application is to use an in-tank fuel pump. Then vapor lock won't happen almost regardless of line routing, because the fuel is all under pressure rather than being sucked out of the tank. Vapor lock usually occurs in the non-pressurized portion of fuel lines feeding a remote pump.
Two cautions: use the absolute best components possible avoiding rubber hoses as much as you can, and make all connections as tight as possible, as far away from abrasion points and heat sources as possible. Fuel fires mostly happen in areas that have been modified.
