Fuel transfer pump
While changing the oil this weekend I noticed diesel leaking from what I believe is the "Fuel transfer pump".  It seems pretty simple to replace but want to make sure I'm not missing something.  Anybody ever dealt with this on a C8.3?

Thanks,
David

Been there - done that - GTTS.  Changing out the lift pump is a fairly simple job, made difficult only by the location.  It looks like you already have studs installed on your engine, so I suspect that is not the OEM pump.  The studs may unscrew...

All the new mechanical lift pumps for the C8.3 are made in China - doesn't matter where you buy it or who's name is on the box.  Shop around for the best price.  I bought mine at the link below, but you may find a better price elsewhere.

Thank you for the help Chuck.  It's funny I found your report while searching but must have started on page 2 or 3.  Looks like hopefully a fairly simple job. 

Thanks again,

David

Yer welcome.

Here's another thread with a good general discussion on changing out the lift pump (just in case your search missed it).
