Yeah, I think we'll do our best to fix the one in the tank first. But that is a good point, if all else fails we'll have a backup plan.

So worst case scenario you can probably do the same thing. Most of the pump assemblies are not big enough for the 75 or so gallon tanks on motorhomes. In my case it was on a Ford F53 chassis. I bought a fuel pump assembly for the same year and motor and just used the frame of the old assembly with parts from the new one.
Boy, I really hope one of these fits! But that is also an excellent option if one of these doesn't fit.

One last question for you all - I notice on O'Reilly's site that there are several options for a pump. Most provide 12 PSI. There is one that provides 15-25 PSI (the Airtex). Does anyone know which I should use? The higher pressure one also flows the most GPH and seems to be a reasonable price, would it hurt anything to use it? Pros/cons?

I know you are running out of time,,, but just last year I replaced our 1995 P30 Chevy in tank fuel pump just for insurance... I got a Bosch replacement pump, fit perfect.. Difference is ours is a 350, not a 454... Got it from Advance Auto ... I can get the part number if it would help. Might be all the same for a TBI system... But I'd check to make sure... Some MH might allow you to cut a hole in the floor to access the top of the tank without removing the gas tank. Ours would not.... Had to lower the tank. Only took about an hour...

We are now on the road! Turns out the pump wasn't bad, it wasn't getting power. We ran a new power wire and the motorhome is running much better now. We replaced the pump anyway - no telling how much abuse it received as those wires were breaking, and it seemed cheap insurance to not have to drop the tank again soon. The part number we used was BE16007 (the high flow version of the E16007) for model year '93 and it fit perfectly. Thank you everyone for your help, it was much appreciated!
