Default fuel pumps decision and vacuum connections

I amin the luxury position of having 3 different fuel pumps. All 3 will fit the engine. I will re-post a pic that I posted before, not to good but when I am back home I can take another on which shows the pumps better.
The pump that I would like to install because it shows in the 1960 shop manual as the original pump for this year, is the AC glass bowl pump (and integrated vacuum booster?). This pump has four connections. 2 on top for hoses and 2 on the side for connectors, (steel lines?) which are which? I read in the shop manual about the wiper motor connecting to the pump, another connection to the intake manifold? and then 1 connection to the fuel tank and 1 connection to the carb. Just cant figure out which to which.
regards,
Ron

The top two for the rubber hoses are for the wiper vacuum. The one closest to the pump arm goes to the wiper motor. The one furthest from the pump arm goes to manifold vacuum.

The gas fittings are for the line from the tank and the output is the line up to the carbeurator. My fuel line is opposite the pump arm, and the line that goes to the carb is about 45 degrees of that toward the front of the engine.

Hope this helps.
