Well, I'm pretty sure its bent, because it was sliding out, up and down. We put the pump on there, with the tip of the rod, on the edge of the arm for the pump. Torqued the bolts down real tight, because it wasn't mounting flush on the block. Pull it back off, and the rod is stock in on spot. It comes half way down the little oval opening on the side of the block.
Idk what the problem was with the old pump. We was thinking it was the pump, because it was not pumping any fuel. Checked by taking the line off the car, and cranking the motor. Cranked until the battery died. But, once we got it off, and bought the new one, I checked to see if it would make a vacuum. And it did. So my guess, is it was just out of gas. Lol.
I'm thinking about just cutting the arm off of the old fuel pump. Bolting it to block, plugging up the holes, and using an electric fuel pump. Would make it easier to start too.
