Default Recommend a Fuel Pump

Replace just the pump/motor or do the entire assembly?

Any brands better than others? Prices are all over the place on these things, wondering what the general consensus is, thanks!

Replacing the assembly is easy, quick and complete. You replace all hoses, strainer and filter.

One and done!

I replaced just the pump. A member here sent it to me. I had to unclick 3 plastic tabs to get it apart. If you can take the cover off a relay, or take a switch apart without ruining it, by all means this is the way for you. I even reused the non-reusable clamps. It depends on your skill level. If you're confident, just get the pump. It's easy. If not, but the assembly for 3x the money. I think changing just the pump is easy and wouldn't hesitate to do it that route again.

I personally replace the pump with a performance aftermarket unit.
I just pictured it (I think) on the latest purchase thread.

Thanks for your answer.

I'm not looking at the same breadth of price disparity as you have experienced. In some cases/brands, the price is very close and in a few instances (AutoZone) the price is exactly same for both. Not sure why?

But saving money is always paramount -- that's why we work on our own cars.

I'm no mechanical pro but I've already taken apart the old unit just out of curiosity, so I'm confident I can complete the task.

I figured that buying the entire assembly will give me the sending unit (fuel gauge floaty thing) and that's a plus.

Question: does the assembly contain any other components other than the float, filter and the motor? Is there a pressure reg or anything else like that?

Thanks!

Many of the assembly's I looked at online did not have detailed information, and did not annotate exactly what came with the assembly. That's why I asked. Many thanks either way.

Turns out, I didn't have a choice -- I thought I had more time but some things came up and I had to do it today. All I could get from my local guy was the motor, so I just did that.

The one I got was branded "Precise Genuine Parts 402-P7207" - $47 bucks, wholesale.

I had just as much trouble getting the retaining ring back on as I did getting it off. I think the hose that came with this motor was a little long. I might have to go back and trim a 1/4 inch. I was only able to get 2 out of 3 clicks on the ring and although, it'll never let go, it will bother me.

But, I cut the access hatch so going back is no biggie. Thanks all for the education.

I'm looking to fabricate a door for the new access hatch, any ideas?
