Re: [DML] fuel sending units

It cost nearly $1200 to replace the fuel pump assembly in my mighty 
Astro. Same thing ... had to drop the tank to get at it. When the D was 
in Houston they replaced the whole tank, pump, pickup, baffle, pads for 
about $1000.

The Astro pump failed again. Best part was that it was under warranty:-)
