SOURCE: fuel pump wiring diagram for 1998 chevy express

Well if theres power going to the relay but not out, then you need a new relay. If theres power in and out of the relay, you might need a new fuel pump. The electric fuel pumps inside the tank are actually lubricated by the fuel as it pumps it, and if it runs dry long enough, it can burn out the pump

How do I drain the gas tank on a 1981Chevy C10 Custom Deluxe pick-up truck?

your typical square body gm trucks from 73-87 do not have drains in the gas tanks " Unless someone added one themselves". The only way to drain the fuel is to run a hose into the tank itself and try to syphon out the remaining fuel into a container using a hose , or a small syphon pump from an auto part store. Being a 1981 model that means it is equiped with a mechanical pump . One alternative is to disconnect the inlet hose that attatches to the mechanical pump and attach a cheap 12 volt electric pump from the part store . You can then pump the fuel out using the existing line .

I need to know where the fuel filter is located on my 1981 ford f150 automatic with two gas tanks on the left side.

I have a 1981 F-150 that I bought new. The only fuel filters that I am aware of are downstream of the fuel pump inline and inline just before the carburetor there is a smaller one.

1983 chevy c10 turns over but wont crank

This sounds like you may have a fuel pump gone bad. Turn the key and listen for a pump whine, if you DO hear one then i guess i am wrong but this is what i would most likely consider first

Where can i locate my fuel filter on my 1981 chevy truck c10

It depends on engine size, but most likely it is located in the carburetor where the fuel line enters. There should be what appears to be a large nut on the carburetor body. Remove the nut/fuel filter housing and replace the filter, don't loose the spring inside.
Good luck.
