Fuel Pump Removal
Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be explo-
sive under certain conditions, creating the potential
for serious burns. Make sure the area is well venti-
lated 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).
Be careful of fuel spillage from the fuel tank since fuel still
remains in the fuel tank and fuel pump. Plug the fuel pipe
of the fuel tank.
Turn the fuel tank upside down.
Remove the fuel pump bolts [A], and take out the fuel
Do not pull the leads of the fuel pump. If they are
pulled, the lead terminals may be damaged.
Discard the fuel pump gasket [A].
