First, I sanded the cracked area so the epoxy would adhere to the tank better. After applying the epoxy, I let it cure overnight for 12 hours. However, I noticed a spot that I had missed so I applied more quick steel the following morning.
This is the first time I’ve done this so I’m crossing my fingers hoping it works. I’ve seen other videos where people use soldering irons before applying the epoxy however, I did not take that approach because my tank was full of fuel. I did want to risk catching something on fire.
Biweekly “How To” #53
Replacing the fuel pump hose inside the tank. This truck had many hands on it before I got to it.
To the best of my knowledge this video is accurate. I am in no way responsible for any occurance resulting from following the instructions in this video.
Replacing a fuel pump on a 1994 GMC truck requires you to drop the fuel tank or lift the truck box. Both are awkward if you don’t have the right lifting tools or maybe if your fuel tank is right full.
So I cut a hole in the box and removed the pump from on top. This will make it easier if I ever have to pull the pump again.
