I don't think that's right as it does not have the fuel out and in let pipes fitted to it.
If your car has the bigger 55l tank petrol comes out of the top via the fuel tank sender, early cars with the smaller tank petrol comes out of the bottom of the fuel tank so that is why it's different fuel tank sender as it's just for the fuel gauge.

You also sent me link to the o ring yes I think that's right, might be worth getting 2 as 1 on the pump and 1 plastic spacer block if you don't get any with the fuel pump.

Be very care full with the plastic spacer block as they are also hard to find and don't over do it tightening the new pump onto the engine block.

Picture which I found the info..

Looking at this diagram...

Is number 20 the rubber hose you're talking about?

No worries, I just hope it helps with your running problem?

At least if not you have some new parts and keep the old ones as spares or sell them on...

Yeah, I study and work so I don't have a lot of time at the moment to spend hours out there, but getting spare parts is always useful. Just trying to determine the problem. Gonna check the fuel lines from the sender and take the sender out and drop a magnet in and check for rust in the fuel tank.
If there's rust I will change the filler neck and rubber hose ;). If nothing, I will replace the fuel pump and go from there!

I've used water pump pliers, opened out to engage in the two slots, using downward pressure whilst slowly turning anticlockwise.
