You may want to go with a DELPHI fuel pump, most secondary fuel pumps have a poor track record, where the DELPHI has manufacturer supported engineering updates.

DELPHI FG0148
Rockauto.com $ 264.89
Amazon.com $ 247.57

I can't access Ebay, but they often sell DELPHI fuel pumps for about $60 less than Rockauto.

I own a 78 nova and to drop the tank you just take the 2 straps off and it drops right out. nothing hard to those old cars at all!

it was easier on my yukon than the old cars ive worked on, on the old cars you have to cut bolts and the straps to get it off mostly then trying to get the new ones bent so you can get the bolts started is nearly impossible. on my yukon they gave you enough bolt and it was captured and it came out so it went back in with just some antiseize

Hey guys just wanted to give an update... i got the new fuel pump and it was a really long hot day. I had to drop the tank 2 different times cause it didnt run the first time. so i pulled the tank back down and double checked the new connector for the fuel pump, it was ok, checked the connector'* near the fuel filter and one of the pins pulled out when i pulled the plug out. so after a repair it fired right up, running around 52 psi.

now i gotta replace the alternator on a 98 town and country tomarrow no rest this week
