It is best to get a small hand pump from an auto parts store and pump out most of the fuel before removing tank. You can then remove tank and take out filler cap assembly and get a little more fuel out so when you take out screws holding in fuel pump it is not too bad. I had a hard time getting fuel pump out and broke small piece of plastic ( the stop/keeper for float ) and now I am hoping someone can tell me of an epoxy or glue that will hold up in tank/gasoline. Luckily I did not lose broken piece. It seems people do get the pumps out w/o as much trouble as I had....Good luck......
