Doesn't look good.
Look in the tank from the where the pump is. The tank tends to rust more in the upper part.
Clean the pump as much as you can, but looking at the picture of it might be past the salvage point.
When you put the pump back in, do a simple fuel flow test.
Disconnect the fuel line from the pump, put in a piece of plastic pipe and use a measuring cup.
Do 3 full ignition on-off cycles.
With a fuel pump in good condition you should get around 3-3.5dcl of fuel out.
Down to about 1.5dcl the engine will run ok.
My tank had rust in it, and the high pressure filter was clogged.
I did a bypass with a external fuel filter and it was ok, but when the tank starts rusting it will only get worse.
The fuel pump assembly is different in newer models, and don't know if a external filter modification can be done.
Used a POR15 tank liner kit, and it came out really good.
I need a few more post and then I can link pictures, and as soon as I can I will post the process with POR15.
