I have an 87 GT sbc. I took the in- tank pump out and modified the pick up. I have been using an external pump and carb. Now I want to go to EFI and would like to put a pump back in the tank. I hacked up the original pump mount. Anyone know of a source for a new sending unit complete with all the pipes and pump mount?

Thanks, Woody

Thanks Dave.
I looked at the Fiero store web site before putting an inquiry in the forum. I couldn't find one even though I used several search variations of the part I needed. I sent them an email and they answered giving me a link to the part I was looking for. It's over $200 so I think I need to find another solution. I think a trip to the U-pull it yard is in order.

If your sending unit still works, why not just get creative and modify the current assembly as needed to accept an in tank pump, shouldn't be too difficult.

I was thinking the same thing after I saw what a new one costs. I read in the forum about cleaning the sending unit to get it back to normal. Mine still works but is not real accurate so a little clean-up is time well spent. I have a sending unit from an Astro van around here some place. Think I'll use the pump mount off that one - if I can find it. Thanks for you suggestion.
