If I remember right I believe there is an anti-siphon device that they started putting in the filler tube leading to tank to keep people from doing what you are trying to do. Meaning the wrong people, of course. I think it is a spring type device that prevents hoses from reaching all the way down in the tank.
I think you do have to drop tank to change out the pump. As for the fuel maybe you can take tank loose and drop it to where you can get past the filler neck and siphon fuel from there. If you have to drop it with fuel maybe try floor jack and a small sheet of wood to help ease the tank down where you can manage it. Hope this gives you some idea of how to deal with your trouble. If you aren't very handy with tools your best bet is to recruit wrench happy buddies or just take to shop($$) :evil:
