The pump is being removed because the steering is very difficult to operate. The pump looks extremely rusty from the outside and it is flaking away alot. I have not tried anything else right now due to experience with this years ago.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
