Help with replacing fuelpump on 1987 fleetwood bounder?

Ok so I am buying a 1987 Fleetwood bounder 30ft, I cant seem to find instructions to replace the fuel pump. From what I can tell it is in the rear of the vehicle by the gas tank. I need to know is it in the tank or off to the side? Also I am having a hard time locating a part number, if anyone knows the part number or where I can get instructions how to replace it, your help would greatly be appreciated.

Frank

Frank... the Yahoo Bounder group has some serious expertise in this type of repair. Please join that group too and post your question there. I have not yet looked at a fuel pump on my bounder but if I have a moment I will let you know what I find.

Yahoo! Groups

This will get you there....it requires a Membership and then a slight wait for group approval before you can POST. these guys are very Bounder specific people and will almost always work with you until issue resolved.

The first thing anyone will want to know is what chassis.

Are you sure it's the pump not a clogged filter or in the case of a mechanical pump a cracked fuel line? Electric pumps run through the oil pressure sender to shut the engine down if it looses oil pressure. There is a relay to operate an electric pump, and a fuse.

Ford went to TBI about that time, if it is TBI it will have an electric pump in the tank, Chevy still used carbs, those had mechanical pumps. Some longer Chevy chassis had an electric booster pump by or in the tank.

The elec. pump is in the tank. There's a filter along the frame on the pass. side near the front, also one in the carb. fuel inlet.

#6 is the regulator. www.gmpartseast.com

We don't have a Bounder but we have a Monaco Lapalma (1999) on a Ford Chassis...we just had our fuel pump replaced and it was in the tank...they had to drop the tank after draining it...we also had our tank relined while it was off...then they installed a new fuel pump, filter and etc...runs great...
First they thought it was the Brain but after changing out several ...found out it was the fuel pump...

Why not just install an external fuel pump from Napa?

my '87 34' Bounder had the fuel pump behind an exterior storage door. it also contained the fuel filter and line for the generator. just look under the coach at the fuel tank. follow the fuel line as it then goes to this exterior pump.

BTW, usually the pumps inside the tank are used for fuel injected systems. since these early Bounders were carb'd they used standard exterior pumps. also, it has two pumps. the electric one near the fuel tank, plus the mechanical one on the engine.

Thank you so much for the help. I found a fuel pump at NAPA part number P4602RV. im driving out to pick up the bounder this weekend. Im going to check the fuel filters and the fuse from the sending unit (hope i said that right) first before installing the inline pump.
