fuel pump in tank??

i have a stock 96 F250 7.3L. is there a fuel pump in the tank or just the main on the engine?? i was losing power going to work and over the weekend it would cut in and out for the first second or so after starting. i plan on taking it to a shop later on. if there is a second pump in the tank, it's either that or my HPOP is going.

it only started after i switched to the rear tank.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

disregard this, i figured it out. my main fuel pump on my engine is leaking fuel. not entirely dead, just leaking, but still need a new one.

Only one fuel pump and it's in the valley on the OBS trucks.

G'luck with your fix... it's not too bad from what I hear from Rick!

thanks, $171 for pump + about 6 hours for the mechanic to swap out. to make it even better, this is the second pump i have had to swap out. the other one went 60k miles ago.
