Can't remember, is it a carburetor or injected? Carbureted would be a mechanical pump on the side of the engine, you'd just follow the fuel line down to it, if injected, fuel pump would be in the gas tank.

http://www.allpar.com/trucks/ramcharger.html -according to that site the Dodge Ram went to single port fuel injection on the 318, two injectors though, it had two throttle bodies in.. drum roll.. 1988
