well the one i purchased is the exact same as the one that came off, with the rear facing inlet hose nipple, but it is impossible to screw back on the pre-bent outlet tube, and get it to line up over the block so that the fuel filter hose will connect. I don't know what in the heck is wrong with this thing

how do you install fuel pump on YJ?

Ok, I was able to disconect the old fuel pump, clean the area, and bolt on the new fuel pump.
Reconnected the inlet tube. But how in the hell do you reconnect that pre-bent metal tubey thingy that connects to the hose with the fuel filter?
I tried for an hour, and every time I was able to get it threaded on, it was now where near being able to connect to the fuel filter hose. The time I stopped in the rotation process and connected it to the fuel filter hose, it was so loose, you can guess what happened when I cranked the jeep to test.... gas spraying all over. So i shut down, and kept trying, but i can't get it.
does anyone have any pointers, what am i doing wrong?

thanks
