    Anyone ever change one? Mines dead. I got a price of $160 for a new one from autozone, are they really that expensive?
    Thanks,

    I have never priced one , but it's very easy to replace . Take the bolt out of the hold down at the base . take it out and slide the other one in

    First of all, the vacuum pump from the local parts store is probably a rebuild. GM used and still uses a pump made by Lucas, and I can guarantee that it will cost you more than $160......

    Like 6.2 said above, replacing the pump is very simple. It's located in the same place as the distributor on a gasser, and is removed and replaced very easily......

    The whole pump is not to blame. Just the silver pan shaped vacuum pod. You can get one through Diesel Injection Services in Texas. I'll get you the number. The are $115 with a $50 core or something like that.
