    I think it's time to replace my electric fuel pump. What else should be replaced besides the pump? And where did you get your parts from? I'm thinking of cutting out an access hole in the floor with a die grinder and just letting a shop do the work since I don't like the thought of working near gas. Any thoughts?

    Cut a hole in the floor for access. Layne Oberto (K5BLT4FUN) did this using my On Board Air in Disney, OK. PM him and he may remember the exact mesurements. Great for "full tank" pump replacements.

    rampage,

    The main problem with the orginal tanks is that the tank baffel comes loose. Make sure that it is still attached securely before reassembly.
