no gas to my carb

i have a 73 el camino with a 75 5.7 4bbl quadrajet. i have put in a new fuel pump, but instead of giving me a 2 line they gave me a 3 line. i had the middle line caped off but there is still no gas to my carb at all. does anybody know what it going because i have tried everything short of a new carb.

If you believe it is the fuel pump.

Remove it , place in a vice. Put a 6+" pice of pipe on the lever and pump it by hand. Keep the hose lenths on, input submerged in fuel. . Find out the input , output , and return . Verify function and prime.
