Technically by the manual, yes, but many don't. Some believe if it ain't broke don't mess with it. Up to you. They don't just up and quit. They tend to drip out of the drain tube.

Roger, I know you advocate making extensive note on an annual.  On an SLSA, how does the mechanic document the decision to retain the old fuel pump in contravention of the manual? Or is it not noted?  Is the owner notified the the fuel pump was retained based on inspection even though it should have been changed or is the owner left in ignorance?  If the owner is not informed, can the owner not assume the change was made, per the manual?

It seems to me the mechanic is letting themself in for downside risk by not changing the fuel pump on an SLSA.  

This seems to me to be the camel's nose under the tent for the mechanic and ultimately for the owner of an SLSA.
