WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO FIRST IS JACK THE TRUCK UP AS HIGH AS SAFELY POSSIBLE.. BE SURE TO USE JACK STANDS THAT WAY THE TRUCK DOENT FALL OVER.. ONCE UP IN THE AIR HE WILL NEED TO TAKE THE GAS TANK OUT OF THE TRUCK.. THERE ARE TWO STRIPS HOLDING THE TANK INTO PLACE..THEN WHEN HE GETS THE TANK ON THE GROUND, REMOVE ALL THE FUEL LINES.(THERE ARE CLIPS ON THE PLASTIC LINES BE EASY) THEN WHEN HE GETS THE LINES LOOSE, THERE IS A METAL RING ON THE TOP ON THE FUEL TANK..HE CAN USE A SCREW DRIVER TO GET THE RING OFF( HE WILL SEE HOW TO TAKE IT OFF WHEN HE LOOKS AT IT) WHEN THE RING IS OFF PULL THE FUEL PUMP ASSEMBLY OUT OF THE TANK AND REPLACE THE FUEL PUMP (THE WHOLE FUEL PUMP WILL JUST NEED PULLED OUT, NO SCREWS) ..JUST REPEAT THESE STEPS BACKWARDS TO REINSTALL .. THIS SHOULD SOLVE YOUR $700 PROBLEM..GOOD LUCK AND THANKS FOR USING FIXYA.COM...KEITH..
