Good idea to wire fuel pump this way?

Before i started rewiring my car, the power feed for the electric fuel pump was crimped into the battery cable where it connected to the post. Could i just wire it to the ACC terminal on the fuse box? If i did it this way would the fuel pump turn on when i start the car and turn off when i turn the car off? And would it get the 12V it needs? Thanx for any help.

That would work. A lot of guys "hide" a switch under the dash or seat or somewhere that also needs to be on for the pump to run. A poor mans anti-theft device. It won't go too far with just the carb fuel. Just wire it in series with the "hot" wire to the pump.
