  1. replacing '94 900S fuel pump with '90T pump

    C900 Workshop
    Can it be done and work properly? I'm having trouble finding stock on the replacement pump in Canada, so I thought I could borrow the pump unit (internal unit, not the whole fuel bucket) from my '90 900T. The pump from the turbo is Walbro 4500270. Haven't been able to get the securing ring off...
  2. Fuel Smell in Trunk

    99 & 90 Workshop
    Hi friends. Usually when the tank gets filled there is a gas smell in the trunk. The filler and vent tubes do not seem to be the source. Maybe the fuel pump or sender have leaky gaskets? I oped the two access caps and see anything, but it does seem "gassy" in there! Do I need a special fuel pump...
