there are three bolts in front and 2 bolts in back. The one upper in back is difficult to see or access and it attaches to a bracket that must be removed. Sometimes it is easier to remove the front engine bracket and then remove the pump

Great, make sure there is nothing in the tank and you should be good on fuel flow.
