Remove the fan by renting a spanner tool for this at Autozone. Take the fan off and then it is easy to access the waterpump. I just replaced both water pump and fan clutch on mine. Both need to be replaced if you are replacing one or the other. Easy job. I have found original bolts are sometimes hard to remove but do not break them off if possible.

SOURCE: 98 land rover discovery fuel pump replacement directions

This site has a lot of information regarding your Discovery including pricing, specs etc. I suspect you can find what you need here:

I was going to write that typical fuel pressure ranges somewhere between 15 & 25# and would have been 12# low.
Guess checking before pretending expertise is wise . . .
