89 GW fuel pump

Greeting FSJ'ers. I have a problem installing a new fuel pump. Napa part, and I double checked with the books that it's the right part #. Now, the pump outlet has a pipe fitting that goes to a steel line which attaches to filter and carb. OK, the new pump outlet is about 1/2" shorter than the old pump outlet, and my steel line can only reach 3/8" closer. Doing some quick math....I'm screwed. What's the deal here? I can't be the first one to replace a fuel pump with a Napa part? Can I???? Is there any kind of adapter I can screw on the pump to give me a little more reach or do I need to start bending some steel line? Any opinions or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Re: 89 GW fuel pump

what about other years of AMC engs of the same size. perhaps an earlier model eng will have the proper looking pump??? perhaps 89 was a transition year for pump configurations and the nu er model is all that napa has.

tried the dealer??

Re: 89 GW fuel pump

As soon as I saw the pic I recognized the truck! I used to subscribe to the ifsja mailing list until my work got wise. Only took em a year or so. I wound up just futzing with the line until I got it to fit. By then I had gummed up the threads in the pump pretty good, so that helped a lot. Anyway, thanks for the help Ken. Hey, didn't there use to be a ken to english dictionary somewhere? (Insert smiley face here)
