When Chrysler fuel pumps fail, they almost always fail to start up, leaving you sitting in the driveway or parking lot. It is extremely rare for one to stop while the engine is running. GM pumps, on the other hand, usually start up, and typical fail during the drive cycle, leaving you sitting on the side of the road. That's just the nature of the two beasts.
No domestic manufacturer used an inline electric fuel pump outside the gas tank. Mechanical fuel pumps on the engine usually spring a leak. They don't suddenly stop supplying gas to the carburetor. This post is over eight years old. I assume the problem has been solved by now! Too bad the solution was never posted for the benefit of the rest of us.
