A regular poster on this board, Ed Vanlandingham, has an MC8 with an 8V92TA and custom radiator, is broken down in Quartzsite.  His fuel pump went out and he is having his bus towed to his reserved campground across from Rice Ranch.  Does anyone at the Bus Rally have a good fuel pump and would someone be willing to put it on for him?  Its an easy job, the anti-freeze does not have to be drained to get to the fuel pump.  If you can help out please call Ed at his bus 928 300 9046

Thanks

Hey since the discussion is started, how do you swap pumps with the coolant crossover tube right in the way? I need to learn this...

When changing the fuel pump (8v71 or 92) the fuel lines and wiring harness is what usually gets in the way.  The crossover pipe has a raise or hump in it so you can get to the fuel pump.

P.S. I haven't heard from Ed tonight, I'm sure he will call me to go to Quartzsite if it isn't fixed yet.....

Geoff, Ed's fuel pump was good for some reason the the fuel pressure switch is activating the shut down he is good now.
Since he is your customer you can figure out the wiring I think it is the run switch in the rear start panel.
Ed had to drive 250 miles to buy a fan belt so I left and came home but he is running .He needs to come to you anyway and have you fix some of those frigging oil leaks
