Well... I got bitten by a bad Carter fuel pump... I bought a brand new Muscle Car version and after a month it started puking fuel all over the bottom of my car. It looks to be leaking out of the top edge of the round pinch seal.

So I was going to buy the Delphi version but the connections are reversed from bottom to top.

Will this work for me? I didn't want to go back to the Carter.

If you just want something other than Carter and don't want to have to reroute your fuel lines (which you'd have to do with the Delphi unit you posted), since you are looking at Rock Auto, I see they list a US Motorworks model USMP16263.  I have no experience with them, so I can't give any kind of endorsement.

Yes... I saw that one but I've read several other posts that the Delphi part was a better quality. 

I don't mind rerouting the lines. It doesn't look like it would take much effort to do that.

I just don't want to buy the McRobb pump because of the price... 😳

Ive run a Delphi pump for several years.  All of the 70 and newer pumps have the lines at the bottom.

Except for the late model 78-79 AMC small cars... Like above... Is this the one you're using too?

Also... I just read several posts that the Delphi was the better part and in one of them you also mentioned it as well... And my first thought was well... "Heavy knows what's up... So that settles it...." Ha... hahaha...

If you hate money you might consider the RobbMc fuel pump. Max output 7 psi, multi-position revolving base, optional two fuel inlets mid level (found out didn't need it) the bottom has the fuel outlet.  
Questions are powerful tools...what's in your toolbox?

OK, I'll relate my last go around with a fuel pump on my 232 six cylinder 69 Javelin. I've only been getting about 3 years on a fuel pump the last few years. I got 37 years off the original carter fuel pump. I've had about 4 or 5 since. The AMC sixes are a little harder to get fuel pumps for then the AMC V-8s (290 to 401)s. The is a little less choice , as some choices are not really available. Heaven help you if you need one for vacuum wipers , they just NOT available. Any way the fuel pump went bad again on the Javelin and going on the name I got a Delphi fuel pump. I put it on and went on a 15 mile round trip to the gas station and back for a little gas as the tank was very low. Next time I came back to start the car it would not run. So, I messed with it and finally determined the new Delphi  was bad after 15 minutes and 15 miles. I got a GMB pump the next go around. The difference is the Delphi pumps are NOW made in China and are now crap . The GMB pumps are made in Taiwan and seem to be good. Turns out the late Delphi pumps are now made in China and seem to be suspect. I'd imagine the Delphi pumps for the V-8s are now China also, so I'd maybe a bit aware of them also. A good Carter fuel pump would be maybe the best choice assuming they are still made in the US ,but then a lot of things are just not made her any more. LRDaum

I just looked up the part number you listed above and in the bottom of the listing is says country of origin is South Korea. I suppose that would be better than China?
