in the tank, but you have to inspect yours and diagnose and repair according to what parts are in use. Even at the ford garage they need tag numbers from the guy who runs the tests. if he wants to replace or order the pumps. They always said the info showed 3 possible for each tank. You would verify recalls or service bulletins had been considered in the diagnosis as well.

The mid to late 80's had several systems, they went from lift pumps and a rail pump, to dedicated separate high pressure pumps. Theres also a selector valve. Fuel diodes were added by recall as time progressed. Kind of a tough one till you get all the info and inspections done with testing.
