CAUTION The 220 TBI unit has a bleed in the pressure regulator to relieve pressure any time the engine is turned off, however a small amount of fuel may be released when the fuel line is disconnected. As a precaution, cover the fuel line with a cloth and dispose of properly.

  2. Secure two sections of 3 / 8 in. x 10 in. (9.5mm x 254mm) steel tubing, with a double-flare on one end of each section.
  3. Install a flare nut on each section of tubing, then connect each of the sections into the flare nut-to-flare nut adapter, while care included in the gauge adapter tool No. J-29658-82 or equivalent.
  4. Attach the pipe and the adapter assembly to the gauge tool No. J-29658 or equivalent.
  5. Raise and support the vehicle on jackstands.
  6. Remove the air cleaner and plug the THERMAC vacuum port on the TBI.
  7. Disconnect the fuel feed hose between the fuel tank and the filter, then secure the other ends of the 3 / 8 in. (9.5mm) tubing into the fuel hoses with hose clamps.
  8. Reconnect the battery cable.
  9. Start the engine, check for leaks and observe the fuel pressure, it should be 9-13 psi (62-89 kPa).

I have a 1088 RV ford enocline F 350 460 engine is there a relay some where between gas tank and engine

Did you replace the fuel filter? If not, you might want to. If you did replace it, make sure it is pointed in the right direction. Usually it will have an arrow pointing in the direction of the fuel flow.
Also was the fuel pump you installed an in tank pump or did you install an in line pump. If you installed an in line pump, it is important to locate it as close to the tank as possible, and make sure it is lower than the tank.

My dad has a 1988 bronco II and took to walmart and had battery put in backwards. He replaced the computer on the truck and still won't engage fuel pumps to start engine

Did you test the fuel pump for power to the fuel pump? If the pump is receiving the correct voltage, then the problem most likely is that the knuckleheads at Walmart fried your fuel pump also.

How to remove fuel tank

Run the fuel tank empty, if possible. The Jimmy's tank does not have a drain plug, but if the pump is still operating, then it is the only method of running the tank dry. An empty tank is lighter than a full one, and it makes removal easier.

Unbolt the fuel tank's protective shield by turning its hex-head bolts in a counterclockwise direction. The shield will then slide out. With it removed, the tank's bolts are now accessible

Disconnect the electrical and fuel line connections to the tank's fuel pump, located on the top center front of the tank. There are two (or three) different-sized fuel lines, and one wiring adapter plug that must be disconnected. The hoses come off by pinching or unscrewing their hose clamps, and the plug simply pulls free once its catch is depressed.

Unbolt the fuel tank by turning the bolts that hold it to the frame counterclockwise. The tank should be supported with a jack during this process, as once the tank is freed it will drop from the frame. Lower the tank out of the truck and use the jacks to set it aside to work on it.

If you going to replace the fuel pump:

Unscrew the two screws holding the fuel pump to the tank by turning them in a counterclockwise direction. Once they are out, the pump can be gently pulled upwards and out of the tank. Some residual fuel may spill out, so have a towel handy.

Replace the fuel pump by lowering it into place inside the tank, then securing its screws in a clockwise direction. The plastic fuel pump may be easily damaged by turning the screws too far, so only tighten them enough to seal the pump to the tank.

Replace the fuel tank into the truck with the jack(s), and tighten the bolts that secure it to the frame in a clockwise direction.

Reconnect the fuel lines and adapter plug. The fuel lines are sized for their nipple fittings, and should only fit onto the nipple that they were designed for. Tighten each one with a hose clamp. The wiring adapter plug should make a "snap" sound when it is properly seated.

Fill the tank with fuel and test the new pump. The pump should make an audible whine as the truck is started, and the whine should stop after a couple of seconds. The pump might make a softer sound after the truck is started--this is normal.

After two tanks of fuel has gone through, replace the fuel filter.

Good luck and hope this helps, Note the bolt that holds the gas tank strap may strip or snap. Just cut it off and replace by welding a new bolt for the gas tank strap.

Chevy Blazer won't start; fuel pump needs replacing

Before spending several hundres on a fuel pump, I recommend doing a fuel pressure test. You can get a test gauge pretty cheap at a parts store. If the pump is junk, you raise the truck, lower the fuel tank, unplug the electronics from the pump at the top of the tank, then with a hammer and flat head scrwedrive, gently tap the lock ring in a counter clockwise direction until it pops off. Pull the pump assembly out and install the new one. Reverse directions to install.
