Replace fuel pump or keep original?? 94 D-90.

I need some advice from the group. I have a 94 D-90 and I am in the process of replacing the gas tank skid plate with one from Slick Rock Fab. I have the old one out and just finishing up drilling out the last bolt that broke off. I do not want to do this again any time soon so I am thinking of replacing the fuel pump. It is the original fuel pump from 94. It has about 95,000 miles. What do you think, should I replace it or just button it all up with the original fuel pump?

I am about to pull my tank out to do the same thing. I bought a new pump even though my current one is fine and I only have 48000 miles

Where did you get your pump and how much did you pay for it if you don't mind me asking?

Just a thought, but I've seen some tubs that have an access cut out directly over the fuel pump. This way it's a snap to replace in the future. This could be easily done when you have the tank dropped in order to get the placement of the hole right. Foreseeable problems: Getting a good seal on the new access plate, cutting into a perfectly good tub, etc. If mine had 48K, this is something I would definately consider. You could start a poll, but I've got 91K with original fuel pump. If you do end up replacing your good one, definately keep that old one, put it in one of those vacuseal bags (when your wife isn't looking) and vacuseal that sucker up and add it your trail spares.

Oh, if my fuel pump fails tomorrow, I'm blaming you

The problem with that is the supports for the tub floor are directly above the fuel pump (one latitudinal one and one large longitudinal one). The old 109s had access ports like that, but they positioned the sender and stuff away from the floor supports so it could be easily done.
To do it in a 90 you have to cut out too many supports (to do it right).

We undo that "upgrade" that people have done quite often.

I'd say replace the pump, but if you use anti-seize and all on the bolts going back in, if you did have to drop the tank down the road at least it would be a easy job.

Is that D90 fuel pump the same one that is in the RRC's? If it is, I've used the Carter fuel pump in a few different trucks with stellar results. It's nearly a direct drop-in, and is available anywhere.

I can't afford to spend 290 bucks a pop when I have three RRC's running at the same time. Fortunately I sold two of them and only have the one left.

Thanks for everyone’s help. I went ahead and got one from George at Rovers Down South. I did not see the Carter 74006 in time and already ordered one from George. Next time I will do the Carter. George did take care of me just like he always does. Thanks for the help and I will post some pictures of it when I get it back together.

I did the Carter conversion a while back. It turned out to be more noisey than the origional that I replaced. (it had about 80k miles on it) I suppose the Carter might have been faulty but it worked.

I didn't like the noise so I put a Rover pump in and now keep the Carter and some small clamps and hose in my Defender as a spare.
