IS THERE AN EXTERNAL PUMP LOCATED IN THE REAR ON PASSENGER SIDE NEAR GAS TANK? THIS IS MAKING A LOUD HUM NOISE AND I AM GOING TO THE BONEYARD TOMORROW. SHOULD I GET ONE? ARE THERE FUEL PRESSURE CONCERNS WITH REPLACEMENT? THANKS. GEORGE

Yes you should have one under the car.If it is loud first that means the one in the tank isn't working.If it has been doing it for a while then I would get one and replace the intank one as well.

Thanks guys. Do you recommend any suppliers for the pumps? Do I need to be cautious about the fuel pressure here? Thanks, George

Thanks for your advice. I don't smoke but am a casual unintentional, I think, huffer so the pink elephant fits with this job. I found that the mounting was loose. I am still wanting to change that in tank pump but don't find anyone who sells them for this year?? I am also interested in replacing the steering wheel from another car at the junkyard to replace this one. Anyone know of there is a bigh difference in fittings from 76 to 89? Thanks, George
