My '05 XStar motor died and then wouldn't start a few nights ago. Fuel pump will prime when ignition key is on, but confirmed no pressure when testing last night. Best online price i could find for MC fuel pump replacement is $400.

I'm hoping to track down an Airtex E2044 at Napa or OReillys in the morning. I have the L18 8.1L engine. Will changing fuel pumps be a "straight swap" or is it much more complicated?

Great thread!

It was a straight swap for my x45 with the same 8.1 motor.

I have seen some guys freak out a little on this thread because the fuel pumps may not be the exact same size. IIRC, mine was a tad bit different, but fit perfectly in the module, and ran great. This is not like a nut and bolt that has to fit perfectly to work. It pumps fuel....

If you have it out you might as well put a new filter on it.

Autozone and Advance usually also carry that pump in stock... plus +1 on filter change.

I need to find a source for 1/4 1/2 stainless steal double ear clamps where you don't have to buy 100 units!
