Fuel Tank Installation

Last Updated: Sep 29, 2015 12:54PM EDT
Fuel is highly flammable.
Work in a well-ventilated area away from sparks and open flames. To eliminate the risk of fire and personal injury, depressurize the
fuel delivery system before attempting any service. Make sure you have a class B fire extinguisher close by. Dispose of fuel in a
recommended and secure container.
• Depressurize fuel system as recommended by the manufacturer.
• Disconnect the battery or fuel delivery related fuses as per manufacturer’s recommendations.
• Remove fuel filler cap and empty fuel tank in a recommended container.
(Note: Some filler necks or fuel tanks are equipped with a rollover safety valve. Tank may not be emptied by the filler neck
unless removed)
• Disconnect all fuel and vapor lines.
• Disconnect and inspect all electrical connectors including grounds.
• Disconnect and inspect fuel filler neck (if necessary)
• Support fuel tank.
• Loosen and remove fuel tank holding straps. Replace straps if damaged or severely rusted.
• Carefully lower fuel tank.
• Recuperate all rubbers and insulators that are found between the floor and fuel tank.
Note: A damaged or corroded filler neck may be the cause of tank contamination
• Read carefully all instructions found in the packaging.
• Install all necessary parts.
• Replace wiring harness if applicable (included with the tank assembly)
• Strap fuel tank back on (ensure all rubber insulators are in place to prevent noise)
• Reconnect filler neck, fuel and vapor hoses (ensure condition of seals and clamps)
• Reconnect electrical connectors and ground (ensure cleanliness)
• Install new fuel filter.
• Add clean or filtered fuel back in the fuel tank (never dry run a fuel pump)
• Reconnect battery or related fuses.
• Cycle the key ON several times without starting the engine with intervals of 10 sec. between cycles. This will pre-charge and
pressurize the fuel system.
• Start the engine and check and correct any fuel delivery system leaks.
• Reconnect fuel pressure
