I quite like Mad's idea of reversing the polarity on the pump. Do you know if ithe pump is drawing current ?

Dear All, I have managed to get my hands on a complete fuel pump and sender unit. To make my life easier I plan on just replacing the pump and not the complete pump / sender unit as the pump only has one electrical plug and one fuel pipe. Own easy is it to remove the one fuel pipe and any recommendations. Boiling water to soften it up. I note there isn't even a clip on it so it must be tight?

Last question, I've obtained a complete sender unit and pump. What is easier to change, the entire unit with the two rusty fuel pipes on the top or just the pump inside with just one hose connected. The pump hose has no clip and looks a snug fit?

You'll need to disconnect the rusty steel pipes on the top anyway to get the pump assembly out to change it so you may as well just swap the whole lot.

Dear All, so I've finally replaced the fuel pump by dropping the tank. I managed to do it on my driveway with a couple of jack's and some basic tools. Although not fun provided that you have some enthusiasm for DIY it's not rocket science. I did have to remove wheel arch liner and disconnect filler neck. Besides the pump I had to buy new rubber hose for fuel pipes (no chance in saving old ones) and some jubilee clips.
