Fuel Pump Assembly
1. Place vehicle on hoist, do not raise. 2. Depressurize fuel system with EFI and CFI Fuel Pressure Gauge T80L-9974-B or equivalent. Connect pressure gauge on Schrader valve located on engine fuel rail. Open the valve and drain. 3. Drain fuel from fuel tank through filler neck until fuel tank is under one-quarter full, use Rotunda Fuel Storage Tanker 034-00002 and Fuel Tank Adapter Hose 034-00012 or equivalent. 4. Raise vehicle on hoist. Refer to «Section 00-02». 5. Disconnect supply line and return line fittings. 6. Disconnect fuel pump and/or sender electrical connector. 7. Remove any dirt that has accumulated around the fuel pump retaining flange so that it will not enter the tank during removal and installation. 8. Turn the fuel pump locking ring counterclockwise using Fuel Tank Sender Wrench D84P-9275-A or equivalent, and remove locking ring. 9. Remove fuel pump and sender assembly. 10. Remove seal ring and discard.
Regarding item 5: Where can the supply and return lines be accessed? Can I disconnect the supply line from the fuel pump after partially removing it?
Regarding item 8: Can I use a mallet and a drift (punch) as field tools to remove the fuel pump locking ring rather than too
One more clarification please.
There are no fuel lines on the external face of the pump/sender. All that is evident is the two prong electrical connector which when removed appears to disconnect the guage and stop the function of the fuel pump. (I cannot hear it) Is the feed line attached to the portion of the pump/sender that is inside the tank and can it be accessed by sliding the pump/ sender unit part way out of the hole to disconnect it?
If this is not possible then How Do I Access the Lines?
