There are 2 ways, you can pull fuel tank, these are the instructions I'll be sending, or if there is nothing in the box you can have a couple buddies help you remove the pickup box and the fuel pump is right there. And the special tool listed , you can use a big pair of channellocks. Hope this helps Thanks Steve W
