Since the fuel pump needed to be changed as well, I simply used the whole fuel system including tank, pump, sending unit and lines. All bolt-in parts and an additional bit of work to secure the lines as they now travel down the passenger'* side rather than the driver'* side.
One important note: In 97, the fuel sending units have a different operating resistance for the fuel gauge. Rather than 0 ohms empty and 90 ohms full, the 97 sender uses 40 ohms empty and 250 ohms full. Make sure to plan a sender change if using a 97+. I still have the 97 sender in the car and allowed me to run out of gas during NEBF
I have a new one for a 94 just waiting to go in.
