Default y block fuel pump

The fuel pump started leaking on my 272 y block. I received the new fuel pump. It came with gasket, fittings, and a bolt with lockwasher. What is the one bolt and lockwasher used for, and why just one? I thought maybe it was for a chevy to hold the pump actuator rod, but why the lock washer? Just one of those things that I keep wondering about. Thanks.. Delphi MF0063

It is on the deck floor of the boat from China because it fell out of that cheesy Chineseum cardboard.....
Too bad you didn't call me for a U.S.A. ethanol gas compatible Fuel Pump.......

The Y-block fuel pump requires two bolts with lockwashers and one mounting gasket. One of the bolts probably did not get inserted into the box before shipping.

I was looking on Rockauto, and the picture they show of this pump, only shows the one bolt and lockwasher, but no explanation.

I never saw a fuel pump come with new bolts.

I got one for a 223 6-cyl and one for a 272Y-block that did include new bolts (both from a local auto parts store, but that was back in the early '90's (pre-NAFTA).
Thank you Mr. Trump for blowing up that piece of garbage that sent our manufacturing overseas. NOW, bring back our factories to good ole USA.
