The best way to change the pump is to remove the fuel filter housing. Unhook all fuel lines from the housing and then unplug the electrical fittings. two bolts hold the housing down, remove them and pull the housing out of the way. Now you cn remove the fuel pump. I woulg replace all the rubber fuel line when it is out. It is easier to put everything back together if you spray WD-40 on the inside of all the hoses.

SOURCE: Unleaded gas in a diesel fuel tank

do not worry about draining it, pour about 6 to 8 ounces of engine oil in it, and top it up with fresh fuel, it will be fine. The only way to drain the tank is to remove it and turn it over.

Have a 93 6.5 that will start once or if pull started no prob but if ishut off and wait a min or 2 will not start again i dont know anything about this type eng. any ideas thanks

Welcome to the wonderful world of diesels. First thing to do is change the fuel and air filters. Diesels are extremely sensitive to both. Also make sure the fuel return line isn't plugged. When you go for filters pick up or order a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, part #10330. It can walk you through most diagnosis and troubleshooting very easily. If the filters don't fix it I'm suspecting the fuel pump could be weak and need replacing. Hope this helps.

Fuel pump wiring diagram 1988 chevy truck

I personally have 1988 GMC truck and had to replace the fuel pump. I found all the info including wiring diagram in a haynes repair manual. These can be purchased in most automotive parts stores. Something I found interesting is that the fuel pump's operation works through the oil pressure switch, located by the distributor screwed into the engine block. If this switch is stuck or sticking it will affect the fuel pump. Replaced a good fuel pump for nothing! The truck had sit up for awhile and the ground wire connections had to be cleaned as well.
