the neutral safety switch should be located near the base of the steering column. you may need to drop the column itself to change it. be sure to keep all screws and wires attached unless you need to remove them when working beneath the dashboard. you also need to be careful about the shifter cable that indicates where the shifter is when it moves. it is easily adjusted by loosening the screw that attaches it to position the indicator on the top of the column so that it indicates the correct position (ie indicates that it is d, not n, or r once you have finished.) the switch is easily removed, but also easily mis-aligned so the switch is in the wrong position. be slow and patient to avoid mis-aligning it during installation. it should be installed in the neutral position as it comes packaged and aligned that way.
hope this is of help.
it isn't difficult to do, but depending on how good you are at being a contortionist, you may want a mechanic to do it for you.

OK, you may have a dedicated pump for each tank, if so; DOES THE OTHER TANK WORK? If so, you have a problem with the switching system or second tank pump. You may have been testing the electrical, but remember: even a pump that works does not pump gas of there is a broken rubber feeder hose inside the tank. I would consider dropping the tank taht does not work and checking the pump and filter inside. Make sure key is on and test (usually the gray wire). Good luck.

It is a little tedious to do but look underneath the dash, at the clutch pedal. There will be a switch that wraps around a rod that goes from the clutch-pedal to the slave master cylinder. Take a look at the new switch. There should be a thin plastic cover that if you remove it. It will allow you to pull the switch off of the rod. Be gentle with installing the new switch, You can damage it if you force it in place.
