I rung Minisport today and apparently the SU pumps only come with 5/16" inlet/outlets so that way they are compatible with more Minis. 

The pumps don't come with screw in connectors, they look like plastic banjo's.

It's not all bad.  With a little bit of oil, I can get my 1/4" hose on the inlet/outlet pipes.  At least I know they are not going to leak?

The pipes are a shy under 5/16"  around 7.6 mm.  Maybe they make them that size to fit both 1/4 and 5/16" hoses.

Well thats a good outcome.
Just keep an eye on the hoses to the 5/16 tails as they can split prematurely when forced to a bigger size.
I had it happen on a facet before I machined the tail.
Cheers, Dave

Thanks Dave,

I'll keep a look out. 

I'm mounting it pretty local and handy under the fuel tank inspection plate where it fits in great with a shortened down coil bracket.
