1967 GT500 fuel pump source

Hello I am working on a 1967 GT500 428 dual quad. Fuel pump is leaking so I ordered a "correct" replacement from a Mustang vendor. I received the Carter M4008 pump. While it does have the factory style fuel filter canister the fuel line fittings are smaller. This car is too correct to start installing smaller, wrong sized anything. I've tried googling correct fuel pump with no luck. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Are they NPT fittings? If so just drill out and re-thread them to the next larger size.

Rare car = rare parts. As long as it looks the same on the outside and operates the same, you have to expect to make modifications. Parts companies want to have as few parts to stock as possible.
