You have to have the car jacked up on all 4 corners, or up on a car lift. Disconnected battery, and it is recommended you have as much gas as possible drained from the tank. Then underneath the car you will find the tank with 2 staps holding it in place. Those staps should be taken off or at least out of the way while the tank is being supported. There are vacume lines, the fuel fill and vent lines, and the wiring harness that all have to be unhooked. Once you are sure that all lines are disconnected, drop the tank and pull to the side. You will see where the wiring harness goes into the fuel sending unit. Around that peice is a slide ring that has to be gently hammered counter clockwise. Once it is free from its retaining clips, the fuel sending unit will have to be wiggled out very carefully. Install the fuel sending unit into the new car and, and reverse the procedure to get everything back together.

Parts needed:

Fuel Strainer maybe

Fuel pump maybe

Lock ring O-ring recommended

Posibly the fuel sending unit if you were having problems with your gas gauge.

The pump and strainer should be replaced while you have it apart. Will save you time and money down the road when the old pump goes out, and you have to repeat the process above.
