So the pump went intermittent on me.
When it wasnt working it didnt prime past 15psi even with 2 primes
When it worked the 1st prime was 15psi, 2nd could get to 30psi occaisionally 37.
Car would start like this but I didnt want to get stranded & it had 185K. At the time I thought that was high for the orig but now I guess many get more mileage from them.

I knew the 14 years of rust was the challenge

So I pcblasted & plucked it out (waited for 200 degree day cause I'm such a badazz)

Straps were history but 2 15mm bolts came out but back 2 sideways bolts required cutting. Crovo already told me the lines could be trouble & sure enough the 3/8 let go.

The only trick to getting it out was pushing the flexible supply line over to come out of the hole, manhandling the sock out by bending & rotating the pump out so the float didnt get all bent up. Its tight but obviously fits.

New sender assy cause I wasnt going in again & a spare means I'll never need it again...right?

2 slots in the cover for the 2 tabs on the sender

New sock NOT in the same direction as the hard lines or it wont install. Ya I tried it...notice the dirty fingerprints on the sock

Back in same as it came out. Grab the right O ring that fits the tank cause they give you more than 1
Only tough part was balancing the tank up & in by myself.
I'll be making an attachment to my jack that secures to the lift plate & has wings for balance. Anticipating the rearend going in shortley
Back on all 4's

Good job. I didn't trust my floor jack on a plastic tank so I crawled under the car and supported the tank on my legs and used my legs as the jack. That's the reason my back hurt for 3 days after I was done. Laughing

Drain the tank out first. The tank itself weighs nothing.

I used a 2 foot length of 2x10 on top of my jack to get the 3/4 full tank back up. Smile Still wobbly, but do-able! Very Happy

Good job, Stevie! afro

I took out 5 of the 7 gallons in there. Next time if ever I'll take 7 of the 7
It was like a circus act at 1st. 1 little tip & 2 gallons ran that way, Smart? not so much Rolling Eyes

My problem was I needed the jack to get the new straps up where they belonged
so I put jackstands & blocks on each edge & then I had room for me & the jack in between.
Anything more then 2 gallons, I would of punted Mad
