I've got a mechanical Carter street pump I'm plumbing this afternoon. The pump has a female threaded hole that mates to 5/16" double flare hardline, and a single-flare male tube.

I'm assuming the flared male tube is the INLET to the pump (it is the port closest to the front of the car) of the threaded fitting) and the threaded female port is the outlet to the carb???

(I said it was a stupid question...)

Sherrell, For streetpumps the slip on fitting is the inlet and the threaded is the outlet for hard line to carb. If in doubt, put a finger over a hole and opperate the cam, 1 sucks & 1 blows.
