I'm reasonably sure that it is the same as the 86, 87, and 88. I haven't done any work in that direction, but if you do a search you should find lots of info.

what I don't know is if you have a single pump set up with the pump in the tank or a dual system with a low pressure pump in the tank and a high pressure pump between the tank and the fuel rail. If you trace your fuel lines from tank to fuel rail, you can determine this

I had to replace the entire fuel system in my 84'. The tank, the rail pump and the in-tank pump with sending unit. The in-tank pump/sending unit is available at local auto parts stores, however, they ain't cheap! It cost me $400.00 for everything and I get my parts for almost cost! I was told if you had both pumps in good working order, you did not need to upgrade to a 255. Is this true?
