    well guys, somebody I know wants me to replace the electric fuel pump on his '94 2.3 ranger. I have no experience with an electric pump, and I told him this. He said I was probably more mechanically inclined than him, and he had nothing to loose. He's buying the pump next monday. I'm gonna have a buddy to help me drop the tank (which is 1/4 of the way full). In exchange he's gonna let us run a couple of hundred rounds through his full auto thompson :bow: ... (I got to shoot about 50 rounds through it today, oh so fun :D )..................so

    If anybody can give me a step by step on how to change this fuel pump, you'll be my hero :bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

    thanks,
    James

    Done this, so speaking from experience. Lift the bed. I think it is 8 bolts and much easier.

    once you get the tank down youll see exactly how to get the pump out, piece of cake. no directions really required. just go easy on it it may be hard to get out after being in there for so long

    The way we did it. 4 ratchet straps to the trusses of the shops down to the 4 tie downs in the bed. Release the 8 bolts. Pull straight up 10 inches. replace pump and set the bed down. Can be done in under 30 minutes.

    Have done this in a driveway also. Released the 4 bolts on the tank side completely. Loosened the 4 botls on the opposite side and then lift the bed to angle it. Works just as well.

    There should be a shader valve on the fuel rails on top of the motor.
