REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figure 1
- Relieve the fuel system pressure.
- Disconnect the negative battery cable.
- Raise and support the vehicle safely.
- Drain the fuel tank by pumping or siphoning the fuel out through the fuel feed line (tank to fuel filter line).
- Remove the tank from the vehicle.
- Remove the fuel feed and return clamps and hoses from the fuel pump assembly.
- Remove the attaching screws from the fuel pump assembly and remove the assembly with the gasket from the fuel tank.
- Remove the mounting screw from the fuel pump motor assembly. Remove the fuel pump motor connectors and remove the fuel pump motor from the fuel pump assembly.
- Install the fuel pump motor connectors. Install the fuel pump motor on the fuel pump assembly and tighten the mounting screw.
- Install the assembly with the gasket on the fuel tank. Install the attaching screws and tighten securely.
- Install the fuel feed and return clamps and hoses on the fuel pump assembly.
- Install the fuel tank in the vehicle.
- Lower the vehicle and connect the negative battery cable.
- Fill the fuel tank. Turn the ignition key ON and allow the fuel system to prime.
- Start the engine and check for leaks.
- Relieve the fuel system pressure as noted earlier in this Section.
- Disconnect the fuel inlet line at the fuel filter and install a suitable pressure gauge on the line.
- Either start the engine or jumper the fuel pump relay, using a suitable jumper wire. Check the system pressure on the gauge.
- With fuel pump relay jumpered, fuel pressure should be 35-43 lbs. With the engine idling fuel pressure should be 25-33 lbs.
- If the pressure is not within specification, check for restrictions in the fuel lines or replace the in-tank fuel pump.
- Before removing the pressure gauge, relieve the fuel pressure again.
- Reconnect the fuel line. Start the engine and check for leaks.
