Carter Fuel Pump

Fuel Pump is capoot. Going with the Carter Fuel Pump alternative. I've got to the point where I need some advice on how to close things up.

Their is a slight difference on the top of the pump where the hose connects on. The LR pump (pictured on the left) is barbed where the Carter pump (pictured on the right) is smooth, making the hose a bit loose fitting. My question is, will a small stainless hose clamp suffice or do I need to replace the hose with something that's a closer fit?

Also, as a lesson learned, the strainer at the bottom comes off with a pair of pliers around the metal ring that attaches to the bottom of the pump. I got anxious and ripped it (second picture). I found a post from Matt Hurst that referenced a strainer part no. STS2 for this fuel pump. I'll have to get this tomorrow.

It's funny, when the D90 was for sale, a couple of interested peeps asked what I would do if I were keeping it. I said, "Well, it's got a 100K miles on it with the original fuel pump. I'd drop the tank and replace the pump." I feel like that Galpin fella, have 2 rovers but can only keep one on the road

I just did this a couple of times(don't ask) on my 95 with the same pump. The tubing inside the assembly would not come off the pump, so I had to cut that. That forced me to get a 12" length of gasoline submersible hose to fit and use 2 stainless fuel injection clamps. I got the hose through NAPA. Its the Gates SAE 30R10. The R10 is the submersible kind. Has been working great since.

I tried using the original hose but it came loose from the pump which made me have to do all the work all over again. But I have gotten to the point that it only takes about an hour to swap the entire thing.

Plus I POR-15'ed the rear brackets and frame back there while the tank was out.

Here is an example of the clamps:

I looked for the NAPA part number but can't find it. I do know that 12" of hose is $25.
