I don't remember what brand I bought, only that I bought it at Advance Auto. That unit looks like the FDM I bought. Remember to get a new locking ring.
My '96 ran the original pump for about 110K miles (18 years). The one I replaced in my '94 (above pictures) had a date code of 2002-7-10, so whatever brand it was (I saw no markings on it), it lasted about 12 years (changed it in June 2014). If you cut the access hole you could change it in an hour, if you drop the tank, it would probably take longer, especially if you had a full tank of fuel. (20 gallons of gas weighs about 124 lbs, plus the weight of the tank itself) (gas is 6.183 lbs/gallon)
So, pay your money and take your chances.
