Thanks for the response. Talked to Nick today and he indicated the same thing. Replace the pump or thread the pump and install a new fitting.
When I had the original Bing on my Jab 3300 (I use a Sonex/AeroConversion "AeroInjector" TBI carb now), it frustrated me that I had to convert firewall-forward from my PTFE lined braided stainless to rubber fuel lines so as to be able to connect to the fuel pump's inlet nipple. If you're using rubber lines anyway, then the nipple depicted above would be OK. However, if you happen to be using SS braided lines with AN fittings, then this would be an excellent time to get a NPT to AN fitting and that would allow you to run the braided stainless all the way to the fuel pump. Most consider the braided stainless "permanent" while the rubber lines need to be replaced periodically, so that would result in one less line that periodically has to be replaced!
