1972 cj5 fuel pump to carb what size double flair from pump?

I have the fuel pump for the 1972 and it is the one that points downward. It has the nipple, which I am assuming attaches to the fuel line from the tank and it has a double flair fitting that goes to the carb. I cannot find a good pic of how this attaches to the carb. Is it a double flair fitting to the pump and then to a rubber hose that then attaches to my carb? No one that I can find sells this double flair line from the pump. Oh yeah the engine is a 304. I could probably get this double flair at the parts store and make my own set up but I do not know what size the flair is. Anyone??

It's not a double flare. It's a 3/16" inverted flare I believe, but it could possibly be 1/4".

Get the parts house to pull a fuel pump off the shelf and match the size, get a 3 foot steel brake line and bend your own. Once fitted cut to length and then use a double flare kit to "flare the end to hold a piece of rubber fuel line to the carb. Problem solved.

Should be 5/16 double flare. You can get the steel line at a parts house & bend it yourself with a tubing bender.
