Opened up the backside so I have access to the bulkhead fitting washers and nuts; cut off the stock supply line so I can use it as electrical conduit; opened up the existing electrical connection holes for the bulkhead fittings.

Also cleaned up the top -- cutting off stock supply/return ells so I can cap the return line. Have one of the bulkhead fittings test fit in the hole.

After I finish up the openings, it looks like if I open up the raised edges ('nubs') of the plastic pump clamp, the pump will go in the stock holder just fine. I'll put a stainless clamp around the pump to create a barrier that keeps the pump from trying to sit/fall any lower. Of course, the hose to the supply line will help hold it in place as well.
