You said you have a 318 poly but what year is it? I had the same problem when I tried to get a oil pump for my 58 318 poly. I order a pump from both NAPA and JC Whitney and both were wrong. 1957-1960 are the same and 1962 to 1964 are the same and 1961 is different yet. I finnaly found the part number and took it to NAPA and got the correct pump. However it is not a racing pump. With the older engines it's not recommened to have a hi pressure pump anyway because it will lead to rear oil seal failure in a short time frame.
