Anyone tried fuel pump repair kit rather than complete pump?

Postby dcarlson12 [OP] » August 12th 2008, 7:03pm

I see these repair kits advertised on ebay:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/FUEL-PUM ... enameZWD1V

Has anyone tried these rather than a complete new pump? If so, what results?

The cheapest I can find a pump mu1375 for 2000 Chevy Astro is at a place called rockauto.com

http://www.rockauto.com/dbphp/mfr,ACDEL ... uel%2BPump

for $260.89

Has anyone bought from them? And is it truly an OEM i.e. AC Delco pump?

Has anyone found it cheaper elsewhere?

Thks,
Dwight

PS I see there is an assembly part#mu1380 which seems to be similar but is "w/ROBUST FUEL SYS SENDER(K53)" but I believe the mu1375 has a sending unit for fuel level. Anyone know the difference or use one versus the other?

The "Robust fuel level sensor" is probably a gold alloy to protect against the effects of sulfer in the fuel.

Dwight,
I am replacing the fuel pump on my 2000 Astro -- quantity sending unit has failed. Pump is otherwise in working order (I am the original owner, vehicle has 98,000 miles). If you want to take a chance on this, you can most likely find a fuel quantity repair kit for less than $20 (or use your old one). Will sell for $50 bucks plus shipping costs if you're interested. Side note: I haven't been able to get the unit out of the tank yet; the lock ring won't budge. Ordered up special tool J-39765, you may need that too, although most seem to get the job done with a drift and a hammer. That didn't work for me -- I left the tank in the van, and cut an access hole in the floor, then will install a 10" marine deck plate. Good luck to you on this one - it's not as easy as I expected.
