New Fuel Pump?

I dropped my tank to put in a used aluminum Genright tank. Should I go ahead and replace my stock fuel pump, vintage 1993 from the factory?

I didn't when I had my tank down a couple months ago.
I keep a clean filter and never let the fuel level drop below half.

Pumps are ruined by driving around on "E" and with dirty filters.

Change the sock though.

It was 10 bucks at autozone. They had it in stock.
I guess it's really called a strainer.
I liked it better than the original.

Thanks Chris. They now go for $5.99 at Autozone.

Daggum it. My sending unit for my '93 is of course different from all other MPI YJ's. It's larger and will not fit in the new tank. I also got a strainer at Autozone that is quite wrong.

So, I've replaced the vents and grommets on my plastic tank with those from the Genright and put a new sending unit gasket. I'll be selling the Genright tank shortly.

Maybe you have an export model.
It has an oddball pump and sender that does not fit a normal YJ fuel tank.
I have an export model. The export model came with a large Bosch pump to deal with possible low quality fuels in places like Egypt or Brasil.

The export tank and skid is a bit taller so the pump and sender will be too long to fit in a domestic tank.

According to Mean Max, the domestic YJ's has a Walbro sourced pump and the export was a fat Bosch pump.

Is it a Bosch?
I have the number written somewhere.
The exact Bosch pump is still available.

I'm looking for my notebook.

My pump was made in France also. I'll see if my pics have it. It's in the tank now.

Yep, it's a Bosch.

Yep, I bet you have an export.
Probably why our original fuel pumps are still in service after 25 years.

Found my notebook.
My Pump is USA made.

Bosch Electric Fuel Pumps 9580810019
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/bch-9580810019

It also has this number which is a Cherokee pump #
8933003591

So, I decided to keep the Genright tank and buy a new sending unit assembly after my stock pump fails...Mainly because a new pump is about as expensive as a standard sending unit.

Keep your old stuff (like we always do anyway)
Will your skid still fit?
