I own a 1989 T Bird SC and I read on the internet that some cars didn't say what makes have a access hole in the floorboard to change the fuel pump thats in the tank. Could someone tell me if the 89 SC has a access hole so the tank does not have to be dropped.
I will do some more research the reason being I just replaced the inline fuel filter and today when I drove 35 miles and shut the car off and went to restart it the fuel pump did not turn on and the car would not start. I turned the ignition off then back on the fuel pump kicked on and the car started and run great. I may have a future pump replacement in store.
Pulling the exhaust and fuel tank is a real pain. But I would do that 5 times before cutting a hole in the car. That's just me.
I heard others say that and I just dont get it Drop a gas tank 5 times rather than cut an access hole???I had a fuel pump problem on the dyno in Dayton. Without unhooking the car I had the pump out in 5 minutes, fixed and back in ready to run. Whole thing took less than 15 minutes. It was one smart mod with no draw backs. I also had a plate I made to cover the hole which takes care of gas smells.
