Fuel pump and filter. There are different size canisters that you can probably find to fit the pump that you have. But be aware that some of the reproductions of these pumps are made in China and are terrible. I've had several fail on a bench test. You are better off getting a good name brand and using a remote filter between it and the carburetor. Don't use glass or plastic- find an all metal filter.

Air injection heads. I'm familiar with this on later year cars (1973 and on). Maybe this is a California motor. In any event, modifications that I've seen include pinching off the steel tube (with some success) and removing the fitting entirely and replacing with threaded plugs (better solution).

I would not leave the pump in place. Just take it off, use a smaller V-belt and tension it with the AC bracket adjustment.
