hello all. was wondering if anyone has done a fuel pump r&r on their own. i looked underneath my jeep and it seems pretty basic. loosen the straps. disconnect the connector and disconnect the filler tube.
so my question to u is, is it pretty easy to do on my own?
Lol it still has gas in the tank only a quarter left I might siphon it out and drop it this weekend and do the seal. I filled it up last payday and used only 3/4 of a tank I was gonna wait till almost empty to do it.
Well I have decided that once my fuel pump comes in, I'm gonna just cut a hole in the floor board in the back and do it that way. Someone recommended that and I'm seriously thinking on doing it. Anyone think I shouldn't?
It's not a bad idea. Just be real careful cutting through the floor. You should make a removable hatch in place of the hole you want to cut, for future access to the pump. And don't forget to seal it up well.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. My only thing would be I need to find a air hammer with a panel cutter. I don't want to use a cut off wheel.
I don't have a compressor. Any suggestions on how to go about cutting?
Its only 2 bolts holding the straps up, just soak them and clean the threads off. Disconnect the hoses right at the tank. It doesn't take that long and I think its much easier then cutting a hole through the floor.
I hope you are planning on removing the tank first then cutting the hole. I wouldn't risk my life attempting to do it with the tank still installed. I would just use a scroll saw with a metal blade to get the job done.
