Default Any chance this Honda tool is the same as GM tool?

Looking to purchase a Kent-Moore J-39765 Fuel Sender unit removal tool. Have not found any used in E-bay or Craigslist.

Numerous searches show the tool on line from $150-$210. Amazon does not carry it. During some searches I found Honda has a fuel sender unit removal tool for $75, with the exact same part number as the Kent-Moore. Any chance they are the same? Attached are images of the Honda website and a tool seller website.

More than likely, its the same tool if they are using the "J" identifier.

Why not use the standard method of screwdriver and hammer? I'd spray some penetrate back there now before you actually attempt it.

I thought after 14 years and tons of corrosion, I might mess up the plastic fuel tank unless I could apply uniform pressure.

Went with your recommendation. It worked- I have been soaking the ring in PB Blaster for four days. About ten minutes worth of striking the base with a large screwdriver.

I'd suggest you lather up the new parts with anti-seize, but I doubt you will have to get back in there again.

Will definitely use anti-seize. Even if not going back in- will provide a bit of lube like qualities when trying to get the ring back on. I did purchase a new replacement ring, but for the first time in three GM fuel pumps I think this ring is reusable (barely).

I think it may be salvageable because (1) four days of soaking in PB- blaster, (2) the top of the 2000-2205 Bonneville fuel tank is not subject to as much crud as the S10/ Bravadas- it has some protection as the S10 has zero from salt landing on top of the fuel tank.
