Hydramat fuel pump issue

I'd like to use a hydramat with my fuel tank. But, the input for my fuel pump is 22mm. Holley has one that connects to an 11mm all the rest that would work for me are either 3/8 of 1/2 NPT. A 3/4" PVC coupler fits nice and snug on the intake for a size comparison. But obviously you can't use PVC in a fuel tank. My current thought is to try and use a piece of 3/4 fuel line and clamp it to the pump. There may be just enough of a lip to clamp it to. Then use a fitting or fittings to get it to attach to the 3/8 or 1/2 NPT.

Any other ideas? Anyone else have a fuel pump with a 22mm pick up ??

Thanks for the suggestion. The outside diameter is 22mm. But, this gives me an idea to look for something that initially screws into that opening. It's 18mm. And there is an 18mm version of this also.
