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?
