94 Buick Park Ave - Fuel Pump Replacement

Has anyone had experience with replacing a fuel pump and do you recommend a Delco or will any brand be o.k. in regards to the noise level of the pump operating ?
Thanks,Dom

Yes, I've replaced plenty of fuel pumps in the C/H cars. I would go with a fuel pump that gives you a good balance between a good warranty/and what fits your budget. I've always used the GM pumps, but I have no choice, working in the dealership environment.
Where you looking for specific details on how to change the pump?

You should be able to just jack the rear end of the car up as high as you can and pull the tank down. About the only thing that you need to do is to disconnect the exhaust system from it's hangers and allow it to hang down a bit. Then you can move the exhaust around the tank as you let the tank down. You should have a couple of fuel lines to disconnect, a couple of hoses to disconnect, and the wiring to the fuel pump and sender which sits at the rear passenger side of the tank.
These are one of the easier fuel tanks to pull out. Obviously, you will save yourself a whole lot of grief if you run the tank almost dry before you attempt the removal.

If I may add that the steel lines connected to the sending unit may be so encrusted with rust that they may break trying to take them apart. Mine broke. Be preparred to possibly buy more than just the pump. You never know how much rust damage there could be.
Spray all screws & connections with penetrating oil the day before and let it soak in.
Good luck.
