does the TSRM still exist anyone?

Anyway you need to jack the rear of the car up and unbolt the gas tank, remove the gas filler neck and disconect all the wires leading to the pump. the pump is inside the tank, i believe its held in by regular phillips screws.

take it out and study it, and install the walboro in the same fashion.

its probably a 2hr job max for the first time doing it.

also while you are down there i suggest you replace your fuel filter.

That's cheap - considering the price, is there any reason NOT to just use this as a stock replacement with no other fuel system mods?

I'm running an NA motor with stock fuel pressure regulator, no j-tube, just 1/4" ID fuel line from the regulator back to the hard line that runs under the body. Can the stock FPR handle the extra flow? Sorry for the (sort-of) hijack.

...well not fot the fuel pump.

run your car until the gas light comes on.

if you are that nervous about gas i suggest letting a pro install it if
you want to go that route.

but look to the TSRM and do it that way, or screw something up.
when i did mine i had the tsrm pages right there and the install was a breeze.

no way to do it with out taking out the tank. I just did mine after I got back from the track. Only had a little race gas left in it, so it was light enuff to drop it down fine. there is a drain plug in the tank though.
Getting the lines off the filter and getting the filter out will be a bitch. I needed Yingling to do that for me while I did the pump and the tank. I didnt wanna break the damn lines

During my engine swap I had to drop my tank a total of 6 times to replace fuel lines that kept popping. (bent the hardline off the pump bracket) The tank was about 3/4 full and was a royal bitch to handle. Me and a friend used a floor jack and a block of wood. It isn't very hard if you have 2 people.

I wouldnt really worry about the gas at all, we had a kerosene blower style heater sitting about 5 feet away.

There ya go, sorry for the lack of undercarriage pics but actually removing the tank is a breeze. From what I remember its two nuts/bolts that hold the straps which hold the tank. Remember to swap your fuel filter for a new one while the tank is down, you can't miss it since you'll have to remove the fuel lines from it to drop the tank.
