I would start at the begining and get a manuel for the truck as the first tool. ( $18.00 at any AutoZone).
I would then suggest a 9/16 socket on a long (20") extention and a good sized ratchet to torque those nuts off easily that hold the straps up...
After the tank is down the fuel sending unit / pump is easy as it is all plastic fixtures and fasteners...
replace with new straps and bolts...

Check to see if the panel fuel gauge is showing the correct amount of fuel. If that's ok then the fuel tank float may be bad.

Possible fuel line leaking or check around the area of the carb for leaks. Check all line connections Check gas tank all over. I doesn't need much of a leak to smell. Some times leaks develope at the tank top where the fuel pump is located as well.Please don't use a match for light to check this out

2002 gmc extended cab sonoma fuel pump replacement


Drop fuel tank, use brass drift and rubber hammer to unscrew retainer ring on top of tank. (Don't use anything that can cause a spark) Very carefully pull fuel pump and fuel level sensor out of tank.

Separate pump from unit and replace with the new pump. Wouldn't hurt to replace filter sock or filter if this model has one.

Carefully slip unit back into tank, replace seal and locking ring, ensuring it is tight.

If hoses and wires are long enough I check for proper operation before raising the tank all the way in place.

Once satisfied pump and fuel gage is working, replace tank in frame.
