Suggested Club Purchase - Fuel Pump tool

Eeuroparts has the fuel pump tool ring remover for $40.

fuel pump ring remover

Might make a handy tool to have around. Been using a large set of pliers to move the rings.

I'm all for that - having the right tool for the job always makes it easier, faster, and you're less liable to break a part you'll need ............
Well worth the $40.00 !

there is a seller on ebay that has em for even cheaper (shipped). Only a few bucks less, but the unit is just as good (I have one). I would consider it a "must" for ebay fuel pump changes. Those rings can sometimes be impossible to remove without the tool.

That should be no problem. We need to talk about it at the March meeting.

I believe mechman900 has a pump retainer ring remover that he made out of pvc pipe, that he has offered to lend out before.

Your suggestion is not an excuse to miss the March meeting.

I have to fly down to Florida that weekend for a conference we're doing. The conference is on child traumatic stress, are traumatized children a good excuse?

I have three kids that use that excuse constantly. They were traumatized by my combat tour or at least the fact that I came home from it.

I still have the tool I made, and I think it's less likely to damage the retainer ring since it engages all the teeth at once. If anyone needs to borrow it, shoot me a PM.

Thanks Tom. That could be in my immediate future. My son is broken down in lot 1 at University of Maryland. We just replaced the battery, checked the alternator and the DI is relatively new. Could be a fuel pump with 132k on it. I'm going to have to go down there and check in person. I heard if you wack the fuel tank with a rubber mallet you can sometimes get an extra start or two. Is this true? where do you strike?

Wow, bad news Larry. If there is something I can do to help let me know. If Tom could scrounge the tool I have time to pick it up and overnight it to you. Call me anytime if that would help.

Thanks, Randy, but it's all taken care of - the car died just as I got onto Rte 93 from Rte 95 - managed to get it onto the shoulder (which in Mass is a travel lane !) I had just popped the hood, and checked the fuel pump fuse (wishful thinking !) and there was already a Mass state trooper behind me ..... He had a flatbed on the scene within ten minutes , and they got me off the road - called a second flatbed to get me back to RI. AAA came through - the second flatbed was there withing 15 minutes. Took the car to ConnTech in Warwick, RI - Mike Connelly and his crew had the car back on the road by Friday afternoon. He'll be at Carlilse - he's done some great work for me in the past, also.
Now I just need to get back up to Framingham for the Genzyme interview !
