Can't recall anyone describing having done this but it makes sense that a rough pump tube interior is going have an effect.
Note this comment about carburetor pump tubes:
Today's fuels with ethanol have less lubrication and demand super smooth pump bore surfaces. Polish pump bore with crocus cloth as required. Rough pump bore surfaces will cause pump cup to stick to bore and tear or dislodge from plunger assembly.https://quadrajetparts.com/accelerator-pump-cup-2332-ethanol-resistantfluoroelastomer-p-1587.html
