I have a 57 Belair 283, auto with a 2 jet carb. I rebuilt the old one once before and am not happy with it. The housing around the accel pump is warped and does not seal or line up well. It runs fine, except when you press on the gas!

I purchased a rebuilt unit and have one problem. The new unit does not have a support above the air inlet for the air cleaner or for the stud to thread into. I have the original stock air cleaner. It looks like the rebuilt has a slot and threaded hole on the sides of the air inlet to add something like this.

Is this normal with a rebuilt? Can I purchase this part somewhere or do I need to return this one?

Thanks for the help.
