Fuel Pump Guard

I have a 1985 90 with the fuel pump positioned just in front of the right rear wheel. It appears that there was once a guard of some sort that covered and protected the pump from rocks, mud, and other debris. I have looked all over and cannot find a part number or a place to purchase this part. Does anyone know?

Thanks in advance.

I may still have the one that came off my 1999 110.

Ok so I finally got my part from Craddock. I am now having trouble fitting the cover over the fuel pump. Does anyone have any suggestions or have any pictures of how it fits?

I have found this: http://www.albrit.de/UNI.cfm?PAGE=75...359&SPRACHE=EN

However, it does not seem to fit in that position. Also, it would leave open the bottom of the fuel pump and not provide any protection.

Any pictures or help would be greatly appreciated.

That parts manual shows the correct location. This part was missing from my truck when I got it as well. Here's a couple photos. The first is the pump without the cover, and the second shows the cover installed. I had to drill new holes for the two bolts that attach to the rear trailing arm mount, but after that it fit right in where it's supposed to.

Yes, there will be a bit of a space between the bottom of the cover the the side of the frame. It does cover most of the pump though, and so far has provided great protection against all the mud and crud that would otherwise cover the pump....

Cheers,

Mike

Thanks Mike. I am afraid that my fuel pump must be mounted differently and that is why I am having trouble. It is mounted on the driver's (RHD) side chassis rail at a 45 degree angle towards the front from the right rear wheel. I need to investigate some more after looking at your picture. Is this where yours is located?

Best,
Taylor

Hmm...I see now that you have a 90. On the 110, the pump is mounted on a bracket attached to an outrigger located beneath the second row seats. It's just forward of the rear trailing arm bracket, and the pump kinda sits in between the two. In this location, that pump cover fits just fine. I'm not sure where the correct location for the external fuel pump is for a 90. Hopefully someone else here has one and can chime in.

External Fuel Pump Noise

I remember when I installed a new Facet external pump on my 110 and reinstalled the cover. I remember the pump being very loud when next to a wall or another car. Is this normal?

Did you use rubber isolators when you mounted it? It makes a huge difference.

I did. Pretty sure they were genuine from RN. Maybe I tightened them too much.
