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
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.
