NOTE: When disconnecting or connecting the fuel pump outlet fitting, always use two wrenches to avoid damaging the pump.
- Disconnect the fuel intake and outlet lines at the pump and plug the pump intake line.
- On small block V8 engines, remove the upper bolt from the right front mounting boss. Insert a long bolt ( 3⁄8 in.–16 x 2 in.) in this hole to hold the fuel pump pushrod.
- Remove the two pump mounting bolts and lockwashers; remove the pump and its gasket.
- If the rocker arm pushrod is to be removed from V8s, remove the two adapter bolts and lockwashers. Remove the adapter and its gasket from small blocks and remove the pipe plug and pushrod from 454 cu. in. engines.
- Install the fuel pump with a new gasket reversing the removal procedure. Coat the mating surfaces with sealer.
- Connect the fuel lines and check for leaks.
