You can lift the bed off, but you'll have to disconnect tailights filler neck, etc anyway, ,so why wouldn't you drop the tank.

Fuel tank and fuel pump removal on 1991 ford ranger

Open the hood and support it with the hood prop rod. Unhook the negative battery cable from the terminal with the battery wrench. Position the cable end away from the battery so that it cannot accidentally contact the battery during the rest if this procedure.

  • Disconnect the fuel filler neck from the side of the truck bed with the socket set. Unbolt the truck bed retainer bolts from the floor of the bed with the socket set.

  • Lift the bed up and off the Ranger's frame with the assistance of another person. Walk the truck bed off the back of the Ranger and set it off to the side.

  • Rap the rag around the tip of the screwdriver, place the tip against the fuel pump retaining ring and tap the screwdriver's handle with the rubber mallet to turn the retaining ring counterclockwise. Remove the ring by hand.

  • Disconnect the fuel pump wiring harness and fuel lines with the screwdriver. Lift the old pump out of the gas tank and insert the new pump in its place. Make sure the new pump occupies the same position and orientation the old pump had prior to removal.

  • Tighten the fuel pump retaining ring with the rag, screwdriver and mallet by rotating it clockwise. Reconnect the wiring harness and fuel lines with the screwdriver.

  • Lift the truck bed off the ground and place it back on the Ranger's frame with the assistance of another person. Make sure the fuel filler neck clears the frame and seats into the filler neck hole in the bed wall when you're lowering the bed onto the frame.

  • Reinstall the bed retaining bolts with the socket set and reconnect the negative battery cable to the battery with the battery wrench

    How to remove 1994 chevy pickup fuel tank

    Pulling the tank is a hassle best avoided. If you just need to change the pump/sending unit it is way easier to lift the bed of the truck and hold it in place with lumber scraps. If you have your heart set on removing it then why not just do it once. Most of the guys around here just cut an access hole above the pump location ( with the tank removed ) then fab up and weld in a frame with a recessed lip and a plate to drop in.

    How do you change a fuel pump on a 2002 GMC sierra, 1500 HD?

    Remove the bolts that hold the bed box to the frame, disconnect the rear light wiring harness and the fuel filler pipe. Set up a pair of saw horses or something behind the truck. Then have four guys to lift on all four corners and set the bed on the stand you have ready. The bed is heavy! And there is the fuel pump! Replace with the new and take care to put the wiring harness for the fuel pump back where it was. Replace the bed, bolts and connect the lights. You are ready to go! Takes about two hours if you don't break the welds that hold the nuts for the bed bolts loose. Good luck!

    Want the location of the fuel pump.Is it inside of

    Yes, the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. labor on replacing it is 3 hours with out a tank shield and 3.1 hours if it has one. The last one I did I found it was actually quicker and easier to pull the bed off the truck. 8 bolts hold the bed to the frame, wireing harnes needs to be disconected and filler neck tube needs to be disconected from the bed. Takes 3 people to lift the bed off the vehcle but I found it was alot faster and easier then actually droping the tank..... Hope this helps.

    2000 Chevy Silverado 2500 6.0 litre fuel pump

    lifting the truck bed off the frame works best if you dont have a lift..take the fuel neck loose from bed and remove bolts holding bed to frame from the drivers side..loosen the bolts on passenger side..raise the bed on drivers side while watching bumper to bed clearance on passenger side.. you should get enough clearance to remove fuel pump from tank

    2001 Silverado fuel pump

    I just did mine and lifted the bed on the drivers side. I used a 30" 4X4 and a 24" 4X4 with a blot pounded into the end and head cutoff. This engauges into a hole in the cross member infront of the wheel. A hydraulic jack and 2X6X6 blocks to jack the bed up. Taking off the wheel makes it easier. Make sure you only loosen the passengers side bolts (4 on short bed).

    Fuel Pump

    The fuel pump is in the gas tank, the best way to do this is to get some friends and remove the bed from the frame. There is i believe 8 bolts that hold the bed to the frame, and don't forget to remove the hardware to the gas tank filler neck. Once the bed is off the frame, you can get to the fuel tank. Disconnect the wire harness and might as well replace the harness since there only $12.00 last i looked, disconnect the fuel line and return line. Remove the fuel pump retainer ring and lift up on the fuel pump sending unit. To install replace the rubber O ring and oil it before installing the new fuel pump sending unit. Install the fuel sending unit retaining ring, gas lines, new wire harness, and filler tube. Good lime also to check the hose to the EVAP since you can inspect them, look for any dry rot to the vacuum lines and replace if needed. Reinstall the bed and use lock tight to the bed bolts or replace them with stainless bolts. Good luck and hope this helps, oh and you might as well change the fuel filter while your have the bed off. The other way is to drop the gas tank which means draining the tank and raising the truck.

    1995 chevrolet pickup 1500, how do I remove gas tank

    the fuel tank must be removed from the vehicle to replace pump or lift the box from the frame. If you remove the tank it is held up with two tank straps and the lines must be unhooked as you lower it. good luck unless you have access to a lift.
