It sounds like they gave you the wrong fuel pump. When I replace mine with an OEM original fuel pump, it had two hose fittings and 1 threaded fitting for the hard line going to the carburetor.

yep I seen them but I was wanting one in chrome and not as easy to find. The pump I ordered at the time said it would fit my 75 corvette and when I look it up it says it will fit ,so that is why I ordered that one, I assumed there would be more ports I guess

Had the same problem when I went to a chrome pump. I just simply plugged line going back to tank. No ill effects.
