Help! Lock nut on fuel tank for fuel pump

Anyone know a way to get the lock nut off the top of the tank for the fuel pump without using the special tool from the dealer. I'm trying to change my fuel pump and it's kicking my butt.

If you are talking about the big ring that holds the pump in place, just get a stap wrench. That will take it off without any problem.

Somehow I knew you would be the one with the answer for this. Thank you. I don't know why I didn't think of that before. We use strap wrenches on the hornets to change filters for the hydralics.

Do you think autozone would carry one?

the big white plastic ring?

a hammer and a big flatblade screwdriver works just fine...with "gentle" taps...

that's how my buddy that's a Jeep tech got mine off when we were working on it...

Yeah the white ring. I actually tried using a hammer and big screwdriver but that thing is really on there. Gonna go fiind me a strap wrench today and give that a go.
