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
Quick Fuel Pump swap FuelPump001
So I pcblasted & plucked it out (waited for 200 degree day cause I'm such a badazz)
Quick Fuel Pump swap FuelPump004
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.
Quick Fuel Pump swap FuelPump005
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.
Quick Fuel Pump swap FuelPump007
New sender assy cause I wasnt going in again & a spare means I'll never need it again...right?
Quick Fuel Pump swap FuelPump013
2 slots in the cover for the 2 tabs on the sender
Quick Fuel Pump swap FuelPump015
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
Quick Fuel Pump swap FuelPump016
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
