How close is the bottom of the flat bed to to fuel tank?

Ford Mechanic: Scott W., Ford Technician replied 2 years ago

Depending on how much room there is, sometimes if there is enough, we remove the rear tire to gain access to the lines and bolts and remove the pump without dropping the tank. We did have one where the customer cut a hole in the bed, we replaced the pump, then he welded the bed back because he had a hitch welded to the frame with no way to get the tank out. I don't know your configuration, but we do quite a few without removing the fuel tank.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
