I'd be every grateful for some advice - I have bought a 1634703594 genuine Mercedes fuel pump. However it is to deep (tall) to fit. It doesn't fit into the "cup" within the fuel tank.
Is this the correct part number? Or should it be a 1634702894?:confused:

Some adverts for non genuine pumps list both part numbers - infereing that the pump is the same size? Is there something different about UK fuel tanks? My tank is made up of two parts with a big fat pipe joining the two.

Any advice gratefully received or it looks like I'll have to buy the other to see if thats the right one:)

The number you purchased is the correct one. What is your full vin #?

What do they look like when placed side by side.

Please update your profile to include the year and model of your truck and where you live.

The last bit of the VIN is a137228, got husband trying to photograph....
The full vin # has 17 characters.

It is not necessary to take a photo. What I was asking is are they the same length when put side by side? It's your observation.

full vin is 1631722a137228, I'm not sure, hubby said it was as if the new one were longer but it could be that it won't seat properly in the tank and therefore appears longer. I'll check whether it is actually longer...

Many thanks for your assistance and patience!!

Three legs that that join lower and upper section of fuel delivery unit are spring loaded. Make sure that arrow on top of delivery unit matches arrow on fuel tank.
