Ok so it looks like the pressure is low. I assume the expected fix is a new fuel pump. Am I also to assume that it is in the fuel tank and that I have to drop the tank to replace it?

Yes and yes.

Considering your car is pretty old, to make it easier, I would just cut the fuel tank straps when you drop the tank. Once the tank is out of the way, you will see the factory fastening hardware used to hold the tank up and be glad that you did cut the straps. Most people can't unbolt the straps with the existing hardware. Its easier to cut the straps and remove the old hardware and replace it with normal bolts and nuts.

I am asking this not having looked at it yet BUT.. Will I have to replace the straps or just replace with the normal nuts and bolts replace the tank fully?

Ok I just looked under the car as best I could. I see 2 straps holding the tank up. Is there any other hardware holding it other than the 2 straps and the hardware holding the 2 straps?

If you attempt to unfasten the existing bolts and find they won't come undone, then cutting the straps is the best way. Once the tank is out of the way, you can get at the cheap factory fasteners, remove and replace them.

No other hardware besides the 2 straps.

I agree, about cutting the straps........but soak those two bolts with PB Blaster first....soak it several times and let it sit overnight before attempting to remove the bolts....you may luck out and the welds on the nuts won't break....saves you buying new straps......but if the welds break, those bolts will just spin with the nuts......then cut the straps....
