I replacedmy pump and it was bad, the new one lasted around 14xxx miles and quit. Pulled the bed, cleaned real good around where the pump goes, pulled the wire connector off, and it wasn't the pump. The prongs on the pump side were corroated, scrapped them good, applied more elec grease, replace the plugin, and it works perfectly, that may be your problem.

Should have about 12v at the pump. If not, follow the wiring and see where the voltage was lost.

If it is true, then that means that the carter pump is the pump you want. If Ford puts there name on something, they trust it. It is probably the same pump they put in it from the factory. Most of the brands they use are motorcraft, but it wouldn't surprise me if they use carter fuel pumps.

To find out how to test a relay, look at this thread (3rd page). I did a complete write up.

List of Quick Mods For starters

For a list of TSBs, go to:
www.bbbind.com

Click on the TSB tab and enter your truck info. There is also a place to click on Wiring and bring up every diagram for your truck. Best of all, it's free!
