fuel pump 7.3

My son has a 1996 7.3 that has been setting for about a year now it was running when we parked it we have tried to start it but we cannot get the fule to build up any pressure up at the fuel filter when we turn the key on. They want $700.00 to change the flue pump out. My Question is can we put a electric fuel pump in line on the frame and do the same thing for a hole lot less money

Yes, you can do an electric system but it is a big project and cost alot more to complete. The fuel pump only costs around $120 from ford and can be installed rather easy.

this may sound stupid but the pump doesn't work unless the motor is turning over. might
try cranking the engine over several times. if you tried that already the pump is not hard
to swap out.

its a two stage fuel pump.up top is a lift pump to pull fuel from tank.fills up fuel bowl then is filtered and drains back into the lower potion of the pump which then presurizes the fuel.someone correct me if im wrong.bought mine for a 100 bucks and installed it in a few hours.

OK thanks I was thinking there was a lift pump on the fuel system maybe we have lost prime on the fuel lines will try some gas on a rag to make sure we have it primed before sending it to the shop.

There is only a hand full of bolts to remove and a couple of hours of work. It really isnt hard to change the pump.

if you want to go electric there is a really good write-up on Dino Fuel Aternative's site. if the veggie instlal kit fr the 1st gen PSD. the first half of the instructions are for teh electric pump conversion, read through it and see if its something you want to get into. i would love to do this on mine but dont know if i ever will.

like others said, its goign to be easier to replace the stocker.
