Replace fuel pump,on chevy caprice claccic-1985


Try to get gas tank close to empty so it's not that heavy. Lift up rear end of box, take down the fuel tank. You will notice an entry w/ some hoses leading into the tank. If i'm not mistaken you unscrew it counterclockwise, or remove whatever screws are holding it in place & lift up the whole fuel pump appartus. It comes sold as a whole unit, so whatever individual piece isn't working I'm sure you wont find it by itself unless you hit up a junkyard.
