Re: If I can fit a ZJ fuel tank, anyone can (lots of accesssories)

It could just be that the seal isn't in position. When you do drop the tank, maybe make an access hatch? There are some threads about it.

I had to change my fuel pump a few weeks ago and I was pretty happy to not have to lie in the snow to do it.

When I did mine I used a new pump, sealing ring, and lock-nut, but it was still a PITA to do. The FSM also calls for 55ft/lbs on that plastic nut!

My plan of action is to drop the tank again, double check the gasket and sealing ring, bend the float arm up slightly, as well as lower the vent tube a small amount. I am not looking forward to doing this a third time! First time was when I replaced the pump because of the stroker build, second time is last weekend for the tank swap, now to fix the leak. The process of dropping the tank is not horrible, it is just the fumes that get to me, and getting my skid plate back on. Getting the bolts in on the exhaust side with the exhaust, bumper braces and shackle relocation brackets is a pain in the ass.

Nope, I hate doing things twice or more.
