The question was whether there was access from inside the vehicle. Because on some cars you can lift the carpeting, remove some covers and swap the pump without dropping the tank (but the pump is still an in-tank pump). On other cars you must drop the tank and then take the pump out.zankone said:well like Christian (Racefiend) said the 82-83 had an external fuel pump, but the 84-86 had an internal fuel pump. Its not that hard to drop the gas tank down (assuming you dont have that much gas on it :wink: )NoahFex said:Must you drop the gas tank to replace the pumps on our cars? You needed to on the 2nd gen ford probes which is a car I am familiar with.
Hope that helps
someone correct me if I'm wrong, I always dought my self when helping others
Alright thanks. Ya, I never understood why Ford decided to change the ease of a FP change when they designed the 2nd gens. :shrug:zankone said::doh: Im sorry I suck at explaining thing, Im sure there will soon be others that can explain it better than me
the mk2's that have internal fuel pumps you must drop the gas tank, there is no way in taking out the fuel pump with out dropping the gas tank.
I know what you mean about taking out the fuel pump with out dropping the gas tank :wink:. I helped my friend take out his fuel pump on his probe (4cyl turbo late 80's) all he did was take out his rear seat and you could take the pump out of there (Im talking about the Probe )
