3 pics for now - will finish the story in a day or so:

Fuel pump failed, tests indicated... so, we removed the tank today.

The heart of the matter before pump replacment



Remove the remainder of the 25 gallons left in the tank:


New pump has been installed in the tank; we will reinstall it tomorrow.

Temp never got above 35° today...

When all else fails bring out the lawn tractor, good one!

Here's a tip for you:
Be sure to check your 'gas tank vents' and make sure they are tight and seated properly BEFORE you put the tank back in.

I had Ford do my fuel pump and down the road my vents came out of place from being jostled when the fuel tank was removed. When I filled up the tank.........all my gas spewed all over I-75 outside of Atlanta.

It may pay to replace all the rubber lines that will be on top when put back.

Just Wonderful! Yet another ford repair mess... sounds like they dropped the tank yanking the lines around and didn't take care to put it all back together correctly.
We checked the vents and nothing was loose, so we left 'em alone. That was one of the lines that got pulled tight as we lowered the tank.

Bruce. Thanks for the pictures. I'll be sure to check out your post in the tech section. I'm just waiting on a friend to come over with a fuel pressure gauge to confirm and if its the pump we will be dropping the tank however I don't have that cool tank mover you have.
