You are absolutely right, the hassle is dropping the tank and Labour Always is the biggest part of the Bill. So for the need and want of say another $70 one would have to be totally naive not to replace both.
In my City, New Car Dealership shop rates are $120-140, private independent shops, can't find one less than $80 hour. Now if I was going to get rid of it, would only do the minimum.
If it was April, would do it myself as have another summer driver but things always hit the fan at the worst possible time and that guy Murphy knows when to Strike. :-(
I'm going to try to source both lines from tank to 1st coupling before I take it in (rather than have it sit in the shop for 3-4 days).
Then another conundrum comes up, yeah it's an old truck but only 56,000 miles and the original pump. Like now that the tank is on the shop floor. Put a new one in or stick with the original. These pumps either work or they don't, unlike the Brit S.U. External electrics that would burn their points and needed a good knock to get them going again, so you could limp home.
Thanks for your Help, greatly appreciated.
