Time to replace Fuel pump on 1998 Ford Explorer?

No simple diagram for changing the fuel pump. It is located inside the gas tank. The gas tank needs to be removed to change the pump. The pump is part of an assembly which consists of the pump, fuel gauge sender and pick up. You also need to change the fuel filter when you change the pump. It should take a professional mechanic about 3 hours to drain the fuel out of the tank, remove the tank, change the pump and fuel filter. Multiple the mechanic's time by whatever the repair shop charges per hour for labor. Complete original fuel pump assembly will cost Approx $600.There are many cheaper options for parts,like non branded parts from local auto parts store.But this non branded cheap parts don't last long and don,t give 100% results and indirectly you again face same problem in few days or weeks time and you need to replace the parts again.So getting/buying original part is advisable.
This details will help.Thanks.-------------------
