Like I said above, I've done three that way. A 302, a 5.0, and a 351W. A 90 and across behind the distributor was no problem on all three.
I usually only use AN fittings when I am working with stainless braid type lines.
So I did this. See pic. Did yours tilt up when you put the filter there?

My filter only has male ends on it, and the line screw is too small for the female adapter. Guess I’ll go back to the drawing board.

The one with a Weiand intake tilts up, a little. The 5.0 with the stock intake sits almost level. The 302 isn't with me anymore and I can't remember.

You might try the approach I used in my post above. I ditched the inline fuel filter since I already have the large fuel filter in the fuel pump. The connections up at the carb were easy... my only trouble was getting my hardline snaked down past my ac compressor and connected onto the fuel pump.
Thanks!

Have you considered upgrading to the 65 pump with canister filter? I hear it is a pretty common upgrade for 66 owners. Filter replacement is easier on this unit because you don’t have to disconnect lines to pull and replace the filter.
Thanks,
Rob

I'm looking at doing the same upgrade, but curious about the diameter of the line and if there are any hp limits? I'm not pushing high hp but it doesn't look very big either.
