Car'* up and running, total time about 4 hours. That includes running over to NAPA and getting a new length of fuel filler hose. The damned thing just wouldn't come off, I had to take an exacto knife to it. Replaced the 5/8" hose as well because I was under there.

I bought an unused Carter replacement pump from Cfoote on this board. It'* not an exact replacement-the insertion of the fuel line into the top of the pump was a little different, but it fit right in with a little car crafting.

This tank is weirdly shaped! Now I know why the last half-tank on the gauge seems to go so quickly.

Anyway, it'* done. If anyone decides to do their own, remember to release the emergency brake cable so it will slip around the driver'* side of the tank at the rear.

"Good luck. Let us know of any other "tips" you come across."

The o-ring that comes with the pump sucks wind.

Buy the GM part with the little prongs that drop down inside the tank and hold it in place when you're re-inserting the pump and gauge carrier.

And use vaseline on the top of the o-ring and the bottom of the carrier.

Thanks for the info! I am sure many will be doing this sooner than later
