Your going to have to drop the tank. First disconnect the filler tube and overflow tube from the filler neck assembly (It will be easier to drain the tank from the filler tube than from the filler neck. Second, syphon the gas out!!! unless you have a lift and jack/hoist to hold the tank. Remove the two bolts from the straps with the tank being supported. (NOTE; these bolt may be rusted and have to be cut so be prepared to replace them.) Slowly lower the tank, at an angle, until you are able to disconnect the wiring to the fuel pump. Lower the tank a bit more than disconnect the two fuel lines and vapor line. At this point the tank should be totally disconnected. Lower the tank completely to access the fuel pump on top of the tank. remove the old pump and replace. reverse order to replace the tank. THIS IS NOT A ONE PERSON JOB UNLESS YOU HAVE A JACK SUPPORT!!!
