hey all .. a few quick questions about installing a in-line fuel pump .. says to disconnect the neg batttery cable.. i am assuming i do both batteries cause theres two of them.. also say to drain/filter /store the fuel. support and lower tank remove fuel pump inspect . flush and dry fuel tank...Is all this nessecary or can i just unhook hook the batterery cables and un screw it and change it? will it affect the pump if i dont follow the rules ?:confused:

Btw how do fat guys work on their lowered trucks.. or is it manditory to have a lift kit ?.. I can hardly fit under there anymore..running boards are hitting my belly..:rolleyes:

I wouldn't bother with all that. Just disconnect both the batteries for safety sake, remove the old one, install the new one. That simple.
But you may have to cap or plug your fuel lines once disconnected to prevent all your fuel from draining.

NAAAHHH, JUST SUCK IT IN GOOD AND TIGHT:lol: , although those running boards are a bisnitch to fit under. The instructions that you have jenn are for a gasser, you don't have to mess with the tank to change out your lift pump. But you'll probably lose some precious go juice in the process:eek:.

Leave the fuel cap on, it will help slow the drips down while you change the pump out.:exactly:

...and make sure you're not laying under all the lines, frame and pump when you finally crack the lines or you'll end up with a face full of fuel. I'd soak the fittings with some juice before you change this out. With the winters you get up there, the salt probably takes it's toll.
