Well so far got 2 different pumps and not matching up. The one on Ebay thru High Flow, first of all didn't come with all accessories show, main thing being the Rubber Isolator/Holder on the opposite side of the terminals. I'm getting back and forth email but saying can't get that part and saying it will work with the old one, but no match. So I went with option 2 Airtex E2111 thru Advanced Auto. The pump is close match, terminals a little different and length different and this came with Rubber Isolator/Holder but will not fit and hold into my Pump assemble. Now have 2 pumps to return and wasted time? Any ideas?

If you buy the correct part to start with you will be money and time ahead. This will work.

I appreciate that, but i'm not spending $190 on a used pump and be in the same situation. I just want to replace the pump with a new pump, don't need the assemble.
But thank you for the response and the link

Default Fuel Pump Issues Continue

Well I managed with much modification to make the fuel pump from High Flow to work, although the Screen/filter wouldn't fit. But got it all together and turn the key, can hear the relay kicking in but not the fuel pump. So I'm thinking can't be ignition, relay is good, fuses are good, there must be something else?

Default Back up and running

Thanks for all the help and suggestion, but it turned out to be a separate fuse assemble under the seat? Needless to say I check the fuse box and the relay. Oh well new pump, around $100, and much wasted time it is up and running.
Thanks

I guess this got missed, but, in the future, before buying new parts make sure they are getting juice! If something like this were to happen again, pull the connector off of the pump and test it with a voltage tester. In this case, you'd have found that no combination of key on/off, cranking, etc. caused any voltage to be read, because the fuse was not allowing the juice to flow!
