It was a breeze. I used an Airtex E8371 pump and a Carter STS-8 screen. Cost: around 70 bucks for both.
There is a vent hose that connects to the stock pump. You will see it as soon as you lift the pump up. There is no clamp, just gently pry it off with a screw driver. (no pic of that..forgot the camera for the first 10 minutes)
Photo#1 is the old pump. I made sure to leave plenty of wire to reconnect to if needed. The rubber sleeve needs to be reused. I found that rolling it off the old pump worked better than trying to stretch it off, less chance of tearing.
#2 is the stock rubber mount and the one that comes with the new pump. You will need both.
#3 is the pump with both rubbers installed. If you notice at the bottom edge the rubber has a rather large "notch" This goes on the bottom where the pump sits on the bracket. I reused the stock gas line because it was of a different type of matieral as the new stuff I bought, and I m guestimating the old line is meant for being immersed in fuel. I originally had the inlet and outlet of the pump towards the bottom to utilize more of the fuel, but I turned it so the connections were on top so I could use the old gas line.
#4 is with the pump installed. Make sure to get the positive wire(blue) to the + side of the pump. The pump came with crimp on connections,nuts and washers, which I used. I am allergic to the act of soldering.
#5 Completed ready to install. The nuts are 1/4" Like I mentioned before, I left the wires long, in case I want to reinstall the old pump.
I made sure it ran before bolting back in. After installation was complete, I jumped the pump again and let it squirt into a container. It seemed to have more pressure or volume than the old pump. I started it and let it idle, under the assumption that a leak will occur while idling,since it is using the least fuel. I didnt smell or see any leaks, but I was desensitized from the smell, so I will take it for a ride tonite and report back.
Heres a link to the instructions I folllowed, it explains the vent hose I forgot to get a pic of.
All in all, a simple..hopefully permanent fix for the "hot fuel pump seizure syndrome".
