Carter Electric Fuel Pump ID?

The PO of the Willys Pickup I'm working on (powered by a SBC w/2bbl). Installed a Carter vane type aftermarket fuel pump due to a clearance issue with the mechanical pump. This Carter Electric pump is obviously running at too high a pressure and flooding out the carb (freshly rebuilt by a highly reputable local shop). Carter apparently marketed a number of identical looking pumps with various output pressures, but the # on the pump body does not correlate to any of the models I find in Jegs or Summit. The body has a green label that has : P/N 152-675 on it. But I can find no reference to that part number? Anyone have any ideas? Thanks
I realize I need a regulator, but the regulators appear to work within specific input pressure ranges.

a picture would be helpful.. I know the GLS series pumps all look identical but diffrent numbers for diffrent preassures.. the GLS 393 ( pump that comes with the Holley 670 fuel injection kit ) is factory set to 15 PSI, the GLS 392 is factory set to 45 PSI.

What I would do is sell the pump you have and buy this 180-P4070 pump from Jegs......
http://www.jegs.com/p/Carter/748050/10002/-1/10307
4-6 psi and no regulator required.

Most of those Carter pumps have a working pressure that works fine with a carb. (4 to 7psi is typical)
Get a pressure gauge and measure the pumps output pressure before you jump to conclusions. The carbs needle and seat and/or fuel bowl float may be faulty, causing the flooding. Only the max effort Black racing "Grump Pumps" had very high running pressure, requiring a fuel pressure regulator to avoid carb flooding.
