arty: Alrighty! FINALLY got to replace my fuel pump. Truck is 12 yrs old, 102k. Last month the drivers door window reg. went. Did that too. took less than 1 hr, reg. cost $85.00 at Advance Auto Parts. Bought a new fuelo pump off eBay last week, finally got to it. Took a little over 3 hrs to do, most of which was just getting the retaining ring off/on. I went the ghetto route - I cut a hole in the bed!! I didn't really have any alternative, as I do these things on as low a budget as I can, as long as it's mechanically perfect. Will post pics of the wound & the "bandage" tomorrow!!!
