1969 GTV fuel pump fuse location?

I am doing a little work on my 1791 GTV.

I did a dash swap this week, and in the middle of it I cleaned out a bunch of PO's weird wiring decisions.
Then after dash install, I wasn't getting the fuel pump to turn on. Probably I did something stupid with the wiring.
So I went to my 71 Papajam (RIP) wiring diagram.
It says that I have a second buss with fuses 11 and 12 to the left of the main buss, like in my old 74 spider, but it isnt there.
So I referred to a 69 Papajam wiring diagram but I cant find the fuel pump on there anywhere.

So, two questions:

1: Does anyone know what fuse the fuel pump in a 69 GTV runs off of?
2: If there is no good answer to 1, can you suggest a fuse that is safe to run switched power to the fuel pump from? Currently I am jumpung directly to the pump from the battery so that I could park the car after working on it, but this is obviously a poor long term strategy. (This may be time to learn how to make a relay.)

Sorry I didnt think to take photos of the fuse buss last night (it was very late) but I will and will post tonight.

Thanks

I'm not sure if things are exactly the same on your '71, but on the '69, the fuel pump fuse is in a small, 2-fuse box near the steering column. The other fuse is for the fog lights on a GTV. Power comes from the hot side of fuse #6 in the main fuse-box. Fuse #6 gets power from the key switch, and that is the second wire attached to the hot side of #6. The fused side of #6 goes to the alternator light. Odds are, the '71 is similar.

Thanks so much, this is exactly what I needed to know!
I'll look again, didnt see the secondary fuse box on mine or on the 69 wiring diagram. Sounds like I can jump from the fused side of #6 if the second box isn't there, though.
Appreciate it.

So, I checked and there is no second fuse box on this car. It is weird because the wiring diagram from Papjam shows the 69 doesn't have the second fuse box but the 71 does. Can I run a relay from the hot side of #6 and run the fuel pump through the relay on juice right from the battery?
