Question about 1983 Ford Thunderbird
1978 thunderbird is leaking gas ,the leak is at the fuel pump.can't afford to go to expert need to do the repair myself
Easy enough fix to do yourself. There are 2 bolts that hold the fuel pump onto the engine. Remove and plug the fuel lines. Remove the 2 bolts holding the pump to the engine. Remove pump and pull towards you to clear the engine and remove. Remove the fittings to replace them on new pump. Match your new pump to your old pump and make sure the fittings are in the same locale. Replace the rubber hoses. Attach the gasket to the pump with adhesive. Slide the pump into place making sure the actuator arm is under the eccentric. Replace the bolts, hook up the fuel lines, and test. Make sure you have no leaks.
dziglar; make sure the metal lines are not cross-threaded, or over tight to crack housing.
Hope this helps; Thanks and please rate me high;
