I have a 30' 1991 Fleetwood Southwind with a Chevy 454 engine and cannot find the fuel pump. Can anyone help me out please?

Hi, I think it may be in the gas tank. If it is the guage and sending unit are with it. I don't remember what year they started putting them in the tank but it could not hurt to check it out. charlie in texas

I don't know the answer, but I suggest you avoid using a lighter or candle.

If it is like my 1990 454 there are two fuel pumps. One in the tank and a second one on the right (passengers ) side of the front of the engine. I had to replace the one on the engine about 5 years ago but the one in the tank (knock on wood) works fine.

You also have a fuel filter on the frame rail on the passenger side probably just forward of the entrance door. If you have a carb. you also have a filter in the inlet of the carb.

Have you run a fuel pressure check?

The fuel pump has been found...in the fuel tank. It is working fine, but the power to it has been knocked out from the fuse box. Just need to re-wire. Thank god I dont have to replace it. The tank holds 65 gallons of fuel and is full.

Thank you all.

If you put your ear in the area of the gas tank and have someone turn the ignition switch from off to on (do not start), you should be able to hear the pump run for 2 to 5 seconds and then shut off. Your question seems to indicate that maybe you are trying to solve a problem vs just being curious. If you are trying to solve a problem just let us know what it is and someone should be able to help you.
