No.The fuel pump sits on the side of the pump about halfway down. It will make a big mess if it has more than half a tank if you pull the pump out. Tank fuel level needs to be drained if it is higher than halfway. it has 2 fuel lines that will need to be popped off using a special fuel line tool and one large electrical connector. Once removed,it has a large steel ring that holds the pump in place,Using a BRASS hammer and punch,tap on the locking ring counterclockwise to remove the lock ring.Remove the pump by turning it to clear the pickup and sender arm. Replace the o-ring for the pump,hold it place with some grease or vaseline. Reverse proceedure to install.
