    in 96(i think) you hvae to replace the entire sending unit to change the pump. i had to change it on my bosses truck (99 chevy old body) and it didn't look like you could just the pump at all with out destroying the sending unit.

    you might be able to run an aftermarket pump that will create the pressure to start a vortec engine.
