Ahhhhh this weekend I got rid of an annoying noise.
My soon to fail fuel pump was swapped out.
Took about 45 minutes at my buddies shop.
Put it up, disconnected the lines, hoses from filler neck and straps. Pulled the tank out by hand, then I carried it over to the spot of floor where opened it up and swapped the pump.
Carried by myself.
..that big heavy awkward tank you say. Yeah..it weighted maybe 15 lbs.
Filled up 2 miles down the road. Capacity of tank is 18 gallons, took 17.46 gallons.
That'* the way to swap a pump.
No more "WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAa" at stops. Only time it was bearable was when it was covered in fuel to muffle the sound.
