How to replace seal on the fuel tank that filler tube goes into on 1997 Lincoln town car

You need to remove the filler neck, it has screws I think inside the gas fill door. Pull it out of the fuel tank, go under the car and remove the old rubber donut seal where tube enters the fuel tank, spray some car cleaner on the rubber and as quickly as possible insert the tank fill tube and put it all back together.

Fuel pump replacement on a 2003 kia sorrento

Remove negative battery terminal, release tank pressure by opening gas cap, remove the rear seat, you will see a cover, remove the cover, you will now see the top of the gas tank and also the pump, the pump is located inside the tank and can be removed from the top, next remove the connector from pump, remove the lines, note : cover lines with a rag as you remove there may be a little pressure, this will help gas from spray all over, with connector removed and lines removed you will now remove the six bolts holding the pump in, lift and remove the pump, take note of the position, make a ref mark so you can reinstall pump in top of tank facing the right way. this is called a fuel pump module, here is a picture of the pump unit.10_6_2012_2_55_35_pm.jpg

My gas pressure washer fell in the pool while running. Is it a goner?

Maybe, there is a slim chance it died before sucking water into the cylinder and cracking the head. To try and fix it drain out all motor oil buy a can of carburetor cleaner and spray the engine out remove the oil plug and the spark plug and spray some wd 40 into the spark plug hole, replace the air filter dry the spark plug and clean the fuel tank and replace the fuel filter inside the fuel tank replace oil with fresh oil and then give it a try. You’re out $20.00 but if it runs you are one lucky person.

Solo 425 and 475 spray packs.

I have a 425 that I have had to remove the pressure cylinder. I found this on the internet one time, but can't find it again. Anyhow, this is how to remove the pressure cylinder on a Solo 425. Do all the disassembly instructions in the owners manual. Then get a short 2x4 or 2x2 and place it on top on the pressure cylinder through the opening on top of the tank. Then give it a good whack with a hammer. Don't be shy, that ****** is in there. It may take more than one whack. Once you have the cylinder out there is a screen on the cylinder that must be cleaned. To re-assemble, turn the sprayer upside down, insert the pressure cylinder, lay the 2x4 across the bottom of the cylinder and use even force (and hammer) to force the cylinder back in. Stop when you get to the O ring seat and you can do the rest by hand, being careful not to pinch the O ring. I have had Solo sprayers for many years and think they are great. But when it seems that when I leave glyphosate (Roundup) in the sprayer it clogs the screen. My hard water may contribute to the problem.

Sprayer wont spray or hold pressure

We use the both the 425 and 475 solo sprayers most days at work and when they start to lose pressure ( after 6 months of daily professional use) we purchase a complete seal kit and put it through them. The only part I can't work out how to remove is the inside cylinder, other than that everything else is easily removed and replaced.

Immediate pressure loss

your dip tube inside the tank has come loose or has a leak near the top. instead of fluid being pushed up the dip tube into the wand hose the air in the tank is just escaping. You will have to remove the wand hose and figure out where the leak is and fix the dip tube.
