Gday Chuff, I’m just catching up on this thread.

On my Dodge Ute I used the original fuel tank intake as the Return and drilled and fitted 1/2” bundy tube into the round plate which mounts the sender for the intake. This connects to a electric lift pump which goes to a surge tank and then a Bosch 044. The vk valiant models also ran plastic fuel lines which were non existent so these were replaced with 5/16 bundy tube for the return from the regulator and 3/8 bundy tube to the fuel rail.
You might be able to do something similar in your Escort to keep the fuel cool.

Regarding the ignition, in the meantime you could just trigger the MSD using the white Wire (I’m pretty sure this is right) from the ignition module. I ran mine like this for a long time.

The Escort will be a weapon once you get it up and running. Good luck.

Thanks heff0018,

Fuel systems pretty well sorted out. I just need to add a return line to the tank and that's it. Won't need a surge tank as the fuel tank is vertical and feeds out the bottom. Most Escort EFI conversions using this style of tank are done the same way.

Original plastic fuel lines will be replaced with hardlines.

Pump is the original Camira external Bosch pump which is the same as a VL Commodore pump.

The photo I posted was supplied by the previous owner of the VL400 ignition module. The MSD unit is his, not mine.
