I would try one made for a 80's 460 powered van. Vans usually had the Saginaw pump. I don't know if vans were available with 460s in the 70's. You should bring your hose to the parts store and compare the fittings before buying. Or you could go to a truck stop and have them make you a new one from scratch.

Find out what year of brackets hold the sag pump on and get lines from the closest year of 460 van to that.

or I can reference some numbers for my 85 swap when i get home. Mone is in the works with AN lines, but the port thread sizes should be the same.

iirc the pump outlet is an m16x1.5 special o-ring.
