Broken fuel pump

(1990 Ford Crown Victoria)
in Metuchen, NJ on February 16, 2010
A few months ago, the fuel pump on my car stopped working (and it was only 3 years old). My dad said that he will try putting in a fuel line and an external fuel pump so that he won't have to deal with the internal one. Do you think this will work well? I do trust him but he's not entirely sure it will work.

I always hate doing a repair that is not putting things back to the way they were designed to work. I would be afraid or damage or fire risk if the car was in an accident but if the pump has the same pressure and volume delivery it will work. If you decide ot use the original sytle pump you may get instructions here, Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website .There is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. or try and get an online repair manual subscription.
