    They have written books about that and it can seem overwhelming for sure, but find that exploded diagram in your kit and remove #1. Lay it out on a bench or table so you can find what you need in the right order when you start to rebuild. It's no worse than rebuilding an engine, smaller parts. The whole key is to give it your undivided attention. Most of the settings on the info sheet can be avoided . For example, most of the choke parts can be removed in groups as opposed to individual parts, thus removing the need to do all the choke settings on reassembly. If you have the means take pictures as you disassemble to use as a reference. If you remain unsure, then perhaps you should take it to a shop and have it done.

First, you will need to get a rebuild kit for it. This contains gaskets and other bits that wear and need replacing on occasion. There will be a number on a tag or the carb body that the parts store will need to get the right kit. There's no point in trying to reuse the old gaskets, if you are going to try that, then don't waste your time rebuilding.

The kit will contain a sheet of paper whjich will give you an exploded diagram of all the parts in your carburator and where they belong. there will also be information on various settings for idle, choke, etc. Don't lose these sheets.

When you start to disassemble the carb, keep the old gaskets to compare with new ones. When you remove the idle screws, turn them in until they stop. Be gentle when you do this and count the number of turns. Write that number down, so when you put it back together you know where the idle setting is supposed to be. There will be extra gaskets in the kit and they will all be different. You must replace with exactly the same as what you took off. Also pay very close attention the how the choke linkage comes apart. It will go together more than 1 way so you can get it wrong. This will make the car act up or maybe not even start.

Soak the carb in a good quality cleaner and make sure everything is clean and all the lines are open before you start to reassemble it.Use your diagrams to make sure you put everthing back where it belongs, replacing with new parts when possible. Be very careful with the float measurement, it must be exact, close won't work.

This is going to take you several hours, so don't be in a rush.

Biggest thing here is you have to have the right bolts in the right place. Easiest thing to do is put the bolts in the new pump as you take out the old one. If you have them all mixed up, go to the junkyard and take a look at any older (pre-Magnum) chrysler 318 or 360. Draw a diagram, and you're all set.

Where is the ignition module at on my 1987 plymouth gran fury which is a 318 automatic?

On The late 80's gran fury The ignition module was part of the computer that is attchced to the air cleaner. I have seen them on some of the very early 80 cars and they were on the passenger inner fender under the hood. But if you have a big black box on your air cleaner with a bunch of wires going to it it was part of that. Hope this helps.
