Now that I've done it once, it won't take more than 10 minutes to do it again.
The hardest part......now that the lock ring is loosened.....is emptying the fuel out of the cannister so it can be removed without spilling its contents inside the trunk....5 more minutes.
I just have the open tank hole covered with a piece of loosely fitted plastic but I can smell fuel inside my garage.
I don't think it will be safe to leave it like this for 2 weeks.
Actually, I'm thinking now about not doing it.
I have the hot wire kit installed which by itself will give the OEM pump a few psi more pressure and 10% more flow.
Can always to it later in the spring.
This will allow me to see the difference in pressure between the two pumps..........if any really exists.
I'm almost convinced that the pump change is not needed.......unless the OEM pump is fried. Mine is still functioning fine.
