Thanks Jeeples

I actually found that TSB last night and while I was under the hood spraying the firewall bushing down with lithium grease I checked those lines just to be sure. There's probably 1/4" gap between the two (maybe more) and from what I can see there's no evidence they are rubbing eachother. They were coating in old PS fluid gunk from the prior pump failure so it would have been easy to spot any rubbing areas. I may try moving them further away from eachother just for giggles the next time I go look at it.

I have your fix, follow along very carefully

1. Empty Jeep of personal belongings.
2. Open fuel fill cap.
3. Stuff fuel fill tube with oily rag.
4. Strike match.
5. Use match to light rag ablaze.
6. Buy replacement vehichle.

The lines on this jeep were not touching eachother. Each had enough oil coated on them it would have been very easy to see if they were rubbing. I replaced the PS pump, and greased the firewall carrier bushing and the noise still exists. The gal didn't want to wrap up too much more into it and she had planned on selling it. I told her it may not be cost effective to keep troubleshooting if she's just going to sell it. Unfortunately I prob won't be much more help in this thread.
