Subject: Re: Fuel pump connection on pre-'87 C900 ('86 to be exact)

Thanks for the suggestion Charles, but I already had a new high-flow pump from Swedish Dynamics that cost me an arm, but not a leg. I found a junkyard with an 87 900 8v that still had the wiring harness for the fuel pump still intact. There is a small pig-tale cable between the main harness and the fuel pump/send unit. The plug on the main harness is the same though all the model years up to 1990, it is the pump connector that changed. I just swapped out the pig-tale, but I did need to put a set of spades in to splice in the send unit wiring because Saab changed the way they ran the wiring for the send unit. I have managed to get the damn thing together almost, but I broke the floor board taking it out. >8-( -- Jeremy Visit my 1986 Saab 900T & me at: "Charles" <> wrote in message > Jeremy, > > Have you tried or some of the salvage > yards advertised in Nines? > > They may have a used pump. > > Mine failed at 185k mi and I replaced it with a used one. > > Jeremy wrote: > >> After 21 years of service, the fuel pump died in my '86 900T. >> >> Bosch has stopped making the model fuel pump for the '84-'86 C900.
