    Leave it to Edelbrock to not use the flare connection for the fuel pump outlet. Both ports are 3/8 NPT. I have purchased the necessary fittings:

    outlet: 3/8 male NPT X 3/8 inverted flare
    inlet: 3/8 male NPT X 3/8 barbed

    The NPT fittings will only screw in between 2 to 3 turns. I know they don't need to bottom out, but they should go in further than that. Anyone hear of this issue?

    I think to fit properly on 2nd gens, the Edelbrock pump has to have the bottom mount conversion. Otherwise fuel lines hit 'stuff'

    That said, even my old Edelbrock rep told me not to use their fuel pumps. Absolute junk

    Thanks Lowend.

    The bottom can now be re-clocked.
