    I haven't heard about it happening to a new pump but anything can happen.

    What I have heard is that you should pack the motor side of the pump with grease because it gets zero oil in there and often collects moisture and rusts. The grease just keeps the moisture out (and can't hurt for lubrication).

    I've seen that only one other time, that is if its the same noise I'm thinking it is. The fuel pump push rod is making the noise.
    Which can happen for a few reasons.......
