Default Fuel pump and tank

I've got some issues I'm hoping you guys will be able to help me out with...

first...

When removing the tank, I cut a couple of rubber hoses because at the time, I couldn't see how to take the clamps off. Now that it's time to replace the hoses, I got off two of the clamps with plyers and a flathead, but the other two don't want to come. Is there an easier way to do this?

second...

the rubber hose that goes from the tank to where you fill up at had to be cut because they were all hard and nasty and wouldn't come off... Auto zone and advanced auto parts don't carry replacements. any idea where I can get new ones or a safe alternative?

and last and most importantly...
removing the fuel pump assembly... Tried using a screwdriver and hammer to knock that ring around but since the ring is plastic it just chips away. A strap wrench would be nice if I could find one that would fit around it. Ordering something off the internet seems to be my only option, in which case I'll probably end up buying a pump removal tool. Is there a quicker alternative to get this done?

Thanks in advance for any help provided

Default Re: Fuel pump and tank

1) To get to the fuel pump and fuel lines the truck bed should be removed. Not hard to do.... 6 bed bolts, 1 wire harness plug and 3 small fill hose screws and a friend to help lift the bed and pull backwards. You will then have access to the fuel lines and pump.

2) The filler hose is a 2 part hose designed to not deteriate from the fuel. Go to ebay...you will get a complete assembly (less the cap) for under $100. Dealer wants over $400

The fuel system is a pressureized system. You need a special tool to remove the 2 hose connections on the fuel pump. It is sold in every parts store for under 5 bucks. I am sure you can get a new fuel pump ring for a cheap price also.

Good luck...let us know how you solve your problem(s)
