I did it it....you can but first....locate a single line side connector
the plate over the bypass is easy to do ....but do drill a hole in the bypass cover to allow pulse waves to reach the pump over the cover
don't forget if you do not use the pressure nipple method behind the carb just plug it with a piece of one inch rubber hose and plug it with a short bolt with a tye wrap https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtG4M7ye1N8
this method is ok but pump over the bypass cover is the best way to go (just my opinion) ...if you can not locate a spare cover ready made to accept the pump.
just cut up some aluminum plate, line up the holes drill & mount . make up a gasket install as shown between the cover and the plate
