Black fittings on braided stainless are always my favorite. Won't look as nice but you could put a 3/8" barbed fitting in the pump and connect it to the factory line with a PC of 3/8" fuel line and two clamps. Then run the braided hose up to the carb and it would still look good. The inlet and outlet on the Edelbrock pump might be able to be clocked individually because I see there is a gasket in between the two. I could be wrong though

They cant be clocked individually.

Hmmmmmm, what if you clocked the fuel pump fittings toward the front? Would you have room? Sorry I'm just guessing based on what I know. Just to warn you if you use the Earl's hardline adapter I think you will have to cut the tip of the factory fuel line off. There is a bubble/ or a flare in it to help hold the fuel line on with a clamp and the ferrule on the Earl's fitting needs to slide over smooth unflared tubing.

Im aware of that. Downside is once its cut theres no going back. Im putting the old Carter pump on today to see what I can do before I go out and buy a new one. This is getting to be a pain in the butt.

I don't blame you, there's not much to work with there and once it's cut there's no going back. What about one of these adapters? Put this on the factory steel line then run AN hose to the pump. Would only need a 2-3" piece of rubber hose
