    Did you replace anything else besides the tank? The fuel pump?

You have a fuel cutoff/inertia switch in your vehicle. You may have to reset it. It will be grey or black....the grey one is cylindrical and the black one is square.

New fuel pump won't prime. No fuel from gas tank to engie. Lines are clear.


The pump works without priming anything. If the tank is vented, and you have fuel in the tank, and the pump is installed correctly, it should pump fuel out.
Are you sure the pump is getting power and ground ?

Okay, you need to make sure the fuel pump is getting power and that you have the lines hooked up correctly. Also, when you replace fuel pumps you need to remove the air cleaner and use starter fluid to get the engine started.

When your replaced the pump did you replace the fuel filter? You may have a fuel pump relay causing you some grief. I believe it is located in the engine compartment in the fuse center on the left inner fender. Check the relay and any related fuses. Check the electrical connection at the pump. They had problems with some of them and they would get kind of hot and distort and corrode. They have new updated ones that can be easily installed.

Gas leaking out where you fill the front tank


You probably have a defective fuel-tank selector valve. Its located on the left frame rail, halfway down. While the vehicle is running, tank"A" is pumping fuel to the engine, while tank "B" is getting the unneeded fuel that is returning from the engine. Thats why it is overflowing.

I've got bad gas and need to know the easiest way to drain the tank or otherwise fix the problem.


The tank will have to be removed from the vehicle and completely dried out.Gas tanks no longer have drain plugs as they did 50 years ago.Remove the fuel pump from the top of the tank,and thoroughly clean the tank with brake cleaner and compressed air and let air dry for awhile.The fuel pump and filter will need to be replaced with new,and after all the reinstallation,the fuel line must be disconnected at the engine,and the line flushed with new,clean gasoline as well as the return fuel line.Spark plugs will have to be replaced also.
