NO!!! And at $200 + I did not replace the sending unit even if it was 24 years old. Just follow the instructions with the pump and check your work carefully. A hot tip for the filter screen sock at the bottom check when you drop the pump assy back in that it is facing the center rear helps when climbing hills when low on fuel no starvati
