1997 Fleetwood Pace Arrow Fuel pump help

I am new here and I just purchased a 1997 Fleetwood Pace Arrow motorhome.
My problem is I just removed my fuel pump and I can not for the life of me find a replacement part for it. I have the 7.5l efi v-8 75 gallon fuel tank. The part number on the fuel pump is :f6tu-9b269-aa. Please help me...

Literally in the same boat as you and not sure what to do. I've searched for hours for a fuel pump to replace this with. If you have any luck please post what you found.

Have you tried "ULTRARV.COM" ?
They sent me the right one for my '04 Pace Arrow.

Well there was this old thread in the Ford chassis section that might have a some info of value to you. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f23/rela...es-508562.html

It's focused on the older pumps, I've noticed the newer ones are a bit different. Most notably by the number of bolts holding them into the tank. Also you'll see a lot of pumps available that are for trucks and vans. Giveaways that those are incorrect is when they are listed as being for a "front" or "rear" tank. And if they have a picture you can usually spot that the generator fuel feed line is missing.

I gave up on finding an assembly. Didn't figure I needed it as my fuel gauge works fine. I just replaced the pump itself. A couple of times. As written up in that thread.

So I found a couple for the 96 v8 7.5l truck and a couple of those do come with the third generator fuel line. The only difference being the wiring harness and the number of bolts. So I was thinking I could use a hole saw to drill out the old fuel pump and essentially keep the 10 bolt fuel pump as a "mounting bracket". I would then bolt the new pump to that drilled out piece so that I could then bolt that back up to the tank as normal. Would this work or am I just being dumb and this would screw things up?

Sounds like a lot of work and probable iffy results. I'm personally not fond on drilling and other metal work on fuel tanks. Plus that'd be one LARGE holes saw. Dropping metal bits all down in the tank.
If you remove the fuel pump "assembly" and look at it, the lower plastic tank around the actual pump is secured by three 4mm (I think) screws. Remove these screws and that slides apart. Then the pump can be pulled out with your fingers after unplugging it. That easy. Swap it for a nice $90 Walbro pump and replace both pump filters. Pop it all back together, put the three screws back in and go.

PFS-48 are out of stock at all of the parts store and they can't order it in because the vendors are out of stock as well. I wish I could just do a rebuild but the pump in this sat about 6 years and the entire assembly is pretty rusted out I feel like trying to reuse it would cause problems later on.

Holy moly! Yessir, I can see why you want the whole assembly now.
You're right, those lines are subject to growing pinholes in them.

Try "Dorman 692251 " for the rusted out part. It's listed as the sending unit. I don't KNOW that it will fit your coach, so check carefully. (EDIT-oops. It does NOT. I looked closer and that one is for a truck or something that uses a lock ring instead of bolts. Sorry.)
If it will work then add a P46b or something for the lower plastic housing with the pump in it. Looks like someone in the past has already done that with a similar part number.
You can get both on RockAuto.com for just over $100. Plus shipping. Look under 1997 Ford F53.
