    I haven't heard of this yet, but I think the tank for the 90s Suburban is very similar if not the same to the 80s bodystyle tank. You may want to check to see if a carbeurated fuel pickup from an 80s Suburban would work. I suspect it would and would allow you to pull out of the tank and keep an operating fuel level sender.

    Why are you wanting to switch to a frame-mounted pump?

    If you have to go into the tank to change the sender, might as well put the proper pump in.....Why are you wanting to do this, to go with a carb?

    I dont think a an external pump is going to give the pressure needed to run EFI
