I found the pump but my mechanic is now booked for quite a while on a big job. Has anyone in the group replaced the fuel lift pump? If so, how challenging of a job is it to replace? I looked for videos on YouTube and couldn’t find anything for the Universal and no luck. Any thoughts, links, etc., greatly appreciated.
I haven't changed my lift pump yet. Remember to close the fuel valves at the top of the fuel tank. I believe the wire connectors are quick disconnects. Remove the two hoses, replace the pump, and hook everything up again. Open the fuel valves, and you should be good to go. Our Universals are self bleeding, so bleeding the fuel system should not be an issue.
