1991 Fuel Pump Ballast Help

I have a friend with a 1991 XJ and I have narrowed his starts and then dies problem to a fuel pump ballast. It runs when bypassed...now where do I find a replacement (AutoZone, Car Quest, NAPA & O'Reilly are my choices). What is the resistance if I have to find one through the illustrated parts guides.

Just bypass it with a piece of equal gauge wire.

It is only there to reduce noise from the pump.

Cool thanks...I thought it might have been to keep the pump cool or something.
