The fuel pump on a 350 in a 1983 GMC should be mechanical thus the fuel pump should be located on the side of the engine near the front under the alternator. You should see steel lines going to it. (should be three) Disconnect these lines first. Then on either side of the pump you will find a 7/16 or 1/2 inch bolt. Remove these. Very carefully break the seal to the engine that will be holding the pump to the engine block. Make sure that the surface that you removed the pump from is free of the old gasket to ensure a positive seal when you put in the new gasket. Inside the hole that you removed the pump from should be a pushrod that has to be pushed back into place while you put the pump back on or you will not get the pump back on. Put the bolts back in and tighten them( but not too tight, just snugg)Put the fuel lines back on the way you took them off and then tighten the bolts up.

You must remove the fuel tank in order to replace the fuel pump.

Depending on the year of the truck as to where the fuel pump is, some have the fuel pump in the fuel; tank so removal of the tank is in order.

Remove the fuel tank or remove the bed.

It depends on the year of your truck but generally if the truck has a carborator the pump is located on the engine and easy to replace. If your truck is fuel injected the pump is located in the fuel tank. The fuel tank would have to be removed. Once the tank is removed replacing the pump is easy. It is important to make sure the inside of the tank is clean and no dirt gets in while changing the pump.

the fuel pump is located inside the gas tank.To change fuel pump, take off the bed of your truck and unscrew the white thing on top of the gas tank. That is your fuel pump.

The fuel filter is in the gas tank, along with the pump. You will not be able to change this filter, unless you change the pump too.

User Avatar

you have to remove the fuel tank and then I think you have to twist the fuel pump then it should slide right out.

Filter is built into the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump. It is non-servicable.

Fuel filter is in the fuel tank under the fuel pump. You have to drop the tank and remove the pump assembly to change the filter.

The mechanical fuel pump regulates the fuel pressure. This truck is not fuel injected. It has a carburetor.
