Fuel Pump Removal
Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be ex-
plosive under certain conditions, creating the
potential for serious burns. Make sure the area is
well-ventilated and free from any source of flame
or sparks; this includes any appliance with a pilot
light. Do not smoke. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
Disconnect the battery (-) terminal. To avoid fuel
spills, draw it from the tank when the engine is
cold. Be prepared for fuel spillage; any spilled fuel
must be completely wiped up immediately.
Never drop the fuel pump, especially on a hard sur-
face. Such a shock to the pump can damage it.
Draw the fuel out from the fuel tank with a commercially
available electric pump.
Remove the fuel tank (see Fuel Tank Removal).

remains in the fuel tank and fuel pump. Plug the fuel pipe
of the fuel tank.

Do not pull the leads of the fuel pump. If they are
