Changing fuel pump tomorrow...

I just picked up my fuel pump for my 95 I6 and I was wondering if I need any special tool(s) to remove the old one. This is the first time for me doing a fuel pump. I have everything I need to drop the tank. Just wondering about the actual removal of the pump. Thanks in advance.

Its pretty easy on the ZJ. The ring on top is sometimes a bear to get off but once that is off it just slips right out. No special tools needed.

Make sure you put the new pump back in facing the same direction as the old.

Hopefully you got an entire pump housing and new gasket as well.

A big screwdriver and a few taps on the ring will get it off pretty easy. Its like 6-7 inches in diameter

I would go ahead and replace the worm clamps on the fill tubes while your there.. mine were pretty much rusted thru. (at the tank and at the top of the fill hoses)

Yeah, I bought the whole assembly ($350) and I have replacement clamps too.

The ring sort of sits down into the tank.

Heres a picture with the locking ring removed..

That link doesnt work.

I only replaced the pump itself and reused the old housing.

They changed the fuel pump in 95 so one for a 94 or 96 wont fit.

The only difference that I know of is in 95 theres only 1 fuel line coming from the pump.

Its a different design though, the one I pulled out was pretty much enclosed while that one has the top open a little. Shouldnt matter as long as you got 1 supply line and the right electrical connector.

I dont think i kept any pictures of it anywhere.

The instruction sheet said it may be different looking from the original but will work fine. When I first looked at it I was like, WTF? Is this really gonna be ok with all of these wires sitting in gas? What if one shorts out or something? They say it will be fine. I hope so.

An electric motor pumping gas, who would have thunk..

I would think napa would get you the right part.

I wouldnt toss the old pump though. Might be able to save some of the parts for later. Just the pressure regulator is like $40-50, and even though jeep says its not replaceable it is. Not exactly easy to get to, but you can.
