yes, you need to find out what else is on the circuit. i believe that the oil sender is on the circuit. look closely at that harness and if it is ok, remove the connector and see if the fuse stays alive, Roy

Roy is correct, it most likely is the connector where the pump plugs in. When the pump goes bad it melts the connector. Most of the time it's because the fuel filter has not been changed, causing a restriction in the fuel line, hence making the pump overwork, hence causing high amperage then melting the connector.
