    <font color="green"> A fuel pump is easy to change, it's a good first project for a mechanical newbie, if that is indeed what you are. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Labor rates would probably be a couple of hours, so between $100-$150.</font>

    Yeah when I put a new one in my big truck, other than being absolute hell to get at, it went in pretty easy.

    May want to go electric, there's a few differing opinions on this though, and I haven't looked through them, you may want to.

    Anyway, if I replaced mine again, I'd take the fender off before doing the dive through the hood thing again.... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    never think that way.... if you dont know you dont know....

    I still cant take a motor apart and put it back together.. but i can do a few things..... i have done body swaps, motor swaps, replaced clutches and that little stuff....

    the cool thing with a site like this is everyone is willin to help and not bash you .... i totally agree.. give it a shot.... you cant go wrong... if you start it and get confused.. grab a digital camera, or hell even a fling... walmart will give you a disk with pics on it....

    post them here and people will see where you are.... and assist from there....

    p.s. my first major job was when i was 16...
    want a good reading history on a 16 year old waiting to go wheelin just read here... good until sunday as i move into a new house.....

    yea, i blew my gov-bomb on the street, replaced that at 17, redid my suspension at 18 over spring break, as long as you have people around you, or with you, or on here to help you get though it, you should be alright, but it pays to be self reliant.

    The trickiest part of the fuel pump replacement is bolting it back up and getting the pushrod to stay up. I use a hacksaw blade to keep the damn thing outta the way while I thread the bolts. You may not know what the hell I'm talking about but it'll all come together once you start... /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
