Help with correct fuel pump for 1987 Bounder


Trying to sort out the fuel system on our 1987 Bounder with John Deere chassis, running ford 460 and C6 box.

Trying to find the correct "in tank" fuel pump with part #. It has a secondary electric fuel pump after the tank a Carter GP4594 rotary vane pump which will be replaced,also have all new fuel filters too.

Still have the original john deere/ford parts manual for the bounder but as yet no luck on internet searches with the available parts #'s.

It has 6 screws/bolts holding the pump onto the tank, with just 2x wires connecting to it and 2 fuel line connections.

It is listed as a Ford item & # in the John Deere manual is EJ6L-9H307-AA

Thanks in advance for any help or possible info

Call Freightliner and ask them for suggestions. They are very helpful. Ours is only on the outside of the tank and replacing it was a breeze. Our electric fuel pump was an off the local shelf replacement part.

Read this,
Lets talk fuel sending units
Make sure you check how the oms read on your sending unit. I just went through this with mine and I have the same set up as you. You could just by a new pump and use your old sending unit also. But sending units of this vintage use a brass float that will leak over time. Might want to change out the float while your there also. I the part number you have is good then cross that to airteck, carter etc.
Good luck JKaz

Probably is the right one Subford ,although ours has either a 60 or 90 gallon tank. Would that make much difference?

I also have a 1987 Fleetwood Bounder 34 foot model.
I am redoing the engine and interior. Mine has the Chevy
454 motor. These are very old fashioned carburetor style engines. Even the
Most modern motorhomes use very old fashioned engine technology compared
to your average car.
There is no computer or ECM as it is called, and there is no real emission
control system in place, like a car has. This means the fuel pump is outside the gas
tank. You can only put a fuel pump in the tank when an
ECM or engine computer is in place to control fuel delivery. So the fuel pump you found in
luggage compartment is probably your primary fuel supplier.
You might find a secondary electric pump mounted on the engine
if you have a secondary fuel tank.
