To my knowledge, most Ford models of this year uses a mechanical (diaphragm type) fuel pump not electrical. However, it is possible to install an aftermarket electric fuel pump in lieu of the mechanical pump. If this was done to your Ford F 100, it would either be either near the carbs or the fuel tank, follow the fuel line.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Appreciate the "Ask Me". With your indulgence, I would be re-posting this in your original problem/post here.

    To my understanding a "loud continuous clicking sound" indicates a relay or solenoid opening and closing, whereas an electric fuel pump would produce a low tone whirring sound. This might be of help, image of a typical factory installed mechanical fuel pump:

    In the possibility that for some reason your particular model has an
    electric fuel pump, then it would perhaps look something like this:

Ford F100 should have a mechanical fuel pump unless someone has installed an electric.

Where is located the fuel pump

normally in the gas tank..these are expensive also if you feel that the price is not worth the vehicle, see about a salvage yard replacement but open the tank up and check it first before install..good luck..

I have a 1982 ford f100 5.0l v8. My question. Is there a filter or pump of some sort in the front gas. tank? Im not getting fuel to my fuel pump located on the timing cover. cat you help me troubleshoot...

No other pumps, just the one on the timing cover, there should be a filter, if you've changed that disconnect the fuel line at the pump from the tank and place a finger on the fuel pump where the hose was and have the engine cranked over to see if the pump is sucking, the diaphragm inside the pump could be damaged and the pump needs to be replaced.
