fuel pump question

I have been piecing togother parts to finish my engine and I got this fuel pump for cheap. It is for SBC and bolted up good and all seems right. I havent fired up the engine yet. My question is the fuel pump has a vent on it, is that an issue? Where do I hook it up to?

fuel pump

if you are talking about an outlet that has threads, this would be a return line to the tank to recirculate the gas to help eliminate vapor lock. this you can plug off if you want.being your car has no return line.

It's exactly what Sedan said. You can plug it off or go to autozone and buy a cheap one without the return line.
