Hello my name is ***** ***** am I speaking with?

I do not understand your question. Ford and GM are different brands. Which engine do you have, and what kind of problem having?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
Volvo Penta 5.7L Gi 350 GM long block installed last fall. Current low pressure fuel pump (VP(###) ###-#### ***** to be for a Ford 351. Can it be used on a 350 GM?

Lets do this a different way. What is the model number on your engine? Let me get the model number and I will look up the correct pump number for you. On your model number, Gi is a family of engines, not the model number. There will be at least 1 more letter after Gi. If you can not find the model number see if you can get the serial number on the engine, I can look it up that way as well.
