Question about Ford Fairmont
I need to replace my fuel pump and my fuel level sending unit in my 1979 Ford Fairmont. The reason is because I am not receiving any signal to my fuel gauge. Neither my chilton's nor my hayne's manual says anything specifically about how to replace those parts. They just say ''drop the tank and replace the parts'' Also after much searching online, I can't even find a replacement fuel sending unit for sale for my car. Any help in either finding the parts or how to replace them would be greatly appreciated.
You should have two metal bands/strapes hold the tank in place, a bolt on each end of the strapes. disconnect the fill neck, supply and return lines, the wires for the pump and sending unit. if possible get the fuel level as low as you can. gas is heavy. lift the car up as far as you can, i say 2 and a half to 3 feet off the ground. a car lift is even better. the fuel pump will be held in place with a ring, use a hammer and punch to drive the ring counterclockwise to remove. don't let any dirt go into the tank.
