Moose,I think this site is a great idea. However I was able to resolve the issue quicker on my own. For some reason the site also charged me 24 instead of 5 dollars to ask a question.That said, my case might have been squirrelly. Bought a used pump. The mechanic broke the male end to the fuel line. I bought a new pump. It didnt fit because no one told me you Need a new harness as well. I returned the new one. Switched the top from the original to the second used pump, keeping the ground wire in place, and everything is happy.
