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
