84 5kt needs a fuel pump - anyone have a used one

OK. I checked out that 84 5kt really well.
Has a KH turbo engine - # on the block is T035103021. Doesn't come up on the
FA but has some other close #'s.
Non-water cooled turbo. Round intake manifold.
Couldn't get it to run as fuel pump is dead. Does anyone have a fuel pump
that they replaced that was still running when they took it out? that they
are willing to sell for a couple bucks?
According to the FA and visual comparison, I should be able to use:
starter, alternator, hydraulic pump and rack (hydraulic system has
appropriately colored brown fluid), ISV, front calipers and rotors, possibly
rear brakes, wheels, as well as misc trim, sunroof motor, etc. Even the
control arms if the ball joints are in better condition than my 86 5ktq.
Feel free to correct me on any of this.
Really ticks me off that the 84 has an absolutely pristine dash but it's
brown which would clash somewhat with my black interior. My dash has 2 big
The 84 also has a complete A/C system - but condition unknown.
The plastic underhood shield which goes over the blower motor is in perfect
Door handles are all good.
Oil lines to and from turbo and cooler are in POOR shape and are going to
let go in short order. This convinced me that I don't want it as a runner,
just for parts.
Also, I will likely use the 84 headlights to do a conversion to the older
style 4 rectangular system on the 86 5ktq but make a totally custom setup
with clear lexan or plexiglass aerodynamic covers.
Anybody want KH engine parts, and or an auto tranny? Those who have already
contacted me for parts (you know who you are) have dibs on the stuff you
asked for so don't worry.
Sure would like to hear it run though, so if anyone has a used (on it's way
to dying) fuel pump for an 84 5kt, I'd sure like to hear from you.
