Actually, I believe there are two pumps, but they are in the same unit. I have heard discussions about the pre-pump and the main pump and the diagrams seem to point to the same unit. At any rate, you need to go to your local Saab dealer with the complete VIN. It appears that Saab used at least 5 different fuel pumps in the '86 Saabs. I got off cheap, mine only needed an $18.00 check valve. This is also a very quick job, you will probably spend more time getting the mats and boards out of the back of car than you will replacing the fuel pump. Just don't smoke when you are doing the job.
