Fyi the metal pipe that is connected to this and down to the tank comes OUT! From the tank, there is a grommet for it where the pipe and fuel tank meet! Found this out AFTER removing the rear tire and some metal like shields abone the rear emergency brake line, dunno.
Lowered the whole fuel tank today, in this heat 115f it was crazy!
Gonna drain it out, since when removing the fuel pump the strainer came completely apart. Note:
Ebay has a pump and strainer for like 25$ from florida, usa. They wouldn't sell me the strainer by itself. The pump is inside the white canister which is the fuel assembly itself. More FYI.I removed the pump from my 90 new yorker and installed in place of the broken fuel pump for the caravan and got it all back in place and it didn't turn on, just cranked. I Don't know, took it out and then tested to 12v in a water bucket and it (the pump from the new yorker) worked! So I don't know. Sent my uncle "the mechanic" to get the whole pump from the junk yard and returned 5 hours later with the wrong pump.
So this might have to wait till Thursday am.
