I have a 2000 Chevy suburban 1500, 4wd, 5.3. Trying to replace the fuel pump with a MU1618 AC/Delco. It won't fit! It is 1/4" too long, even when fully compressed. That's why the first replacement failed. The wire connector from the fuel pump rubbed against the wire connector which leaves the tank. Broke the wires. This pump appears to be build with not enough clearance. I am out of ideas besides trying to solder the wires to the fuel pump, thus eliminating the connector. I'm really stuck. Any ideas?
have the same problem?
