fuel pump replacement

my dealer told me my fuel pump is going out on my 06 F450. I really am having a hard time trying to justify paying them 800 dollars to replace it. So my question is can I do this myself and what are the thoughts about getting one from a salvaged truck. Input suggestions help??

Spend $600 with Innovative Diesel or any other sponsor and get the AirDog II. It is a direct replacement for the stock pump and is 100 times better. Filters are cheaper as well. Plus you will never run low on fuel pressure at WOT. All you will need is basic hand tools and the fuel line tool which is very inexpensive.

Yep, either this or get a new OEM replacement from Tousley Ford Parts and swap it in yourself. I think they run about $240 or so from Tousley.

Either way, I'd recommend getting a fuel pressure gauge and checking the fuel pressure for yourself.

I just replaced mine today. Took about 30 minutes. Remove 3 nuts (13mm) from bolts going thru frame and remove 4 fuel lines with tool and unhook 3 wire plugs. Very simple to do. I took the risk and bought a used one from a wrecked truck with 40k miles for $100 and seems to be working fine so far. Fuel pressure is running between 61-65 psi. Old pump was running anywhere from 5-55 psi. Good luck
