The correct way to do this is to drop the exhaust system, then the rear axel unit, then the fuel tank. I cheated and cut a hole in the trunk to get to the fuel pump and lines. the unit is right in the middle where the t-tops are stored. You need to cut a hole about three inches to the left and right of the center line. Be carefull since the fuel tank is less than one inch below the metal you are cutting.I drilled a 1/2 hole first then used a scrollsaw with a metal blade and held it on an angle so it would not cut deep. Watch for the gas lines which run from front to back. Make sure your life insurance is paid up.

Re: how do i replace a fuel pump on 1886 camaro
Spend $20 and get a Haynes Repair Manual from Auto Zone or some other Parts Retailer for your specific Make and Model, it will give you detailed, step by steps instructions with pictures to do just that. Best $20 I ever spent to fix the used cars I have had in the past. You will become an 'expert' real soon, if your car needs a lot of work!

The fuel pump is in the gas tank. To replace it you need to drain most of the fuel out of the tank and remove the tank from the car. The car needs to be lifted up in the air enough to slide the tank from under the car. There is a metal ring on the top of the tank and it needs to be removed jently with a screw driver and a small hammer. This part (fuel sending unit) is worth lots of money so do not damage it. The pump is in the tank and will come out when the metal retaining ring/ fuel sending unit is removed. Install the new pump the same way the old one came out and reverse these steps for installation.
It may be possible to make the pump work for a short while if you hit the bottom of the fuel tank in the middle with a hammer.
yea most american made cars have the fuel pump in the tank.....just drop the tank and replace....not that hard to do but you will need a helping hand...not something id attempt on my own......did you check the fuel pump relay and fuse.....that could be i too....try that first its cheaper....hope this helps :)
most likelly you fuel pump relay stuck close try to replace it,
and also look for posible bypass circuit installed to run fuel pump all the time, if you bought the car with the problem may be some one by paaseed but if not the replace the fuel relay
