Fuel Pump Install on '98 GT & Where to Get Walbro GSS317?
I was just flipping through the service manual for my '98 GT to see what was involved in changing the fuel pump. It indicates I've got to drop the tank to do it. Blah! For some reason I always thought that plastic area under the spare tire was some kind of access hole for the pump, but guess I was wrong.
Anywho, given that, I figured I ought to go ahead and put a Walbro 255lph fuel pump in there while I have it out rather than the 190lph unit that came with the Roush/SVO roots blower I'll be putting on. FRPP heads will be going on next year with a HP goal of about 320 to the wheels.
I believe the GSS317 is the right model # for my bastard child '98 GT, but I'm not sure. Anybody care to confirm or deny that? Also, where can I get one? I was checking out JD's Performance and they don't have the 317 listed on their web page, only the 307, 340, and 342.
Second, can anybody offer any tips for draining the gas out of the tank? I'm planning on just running the car down to about 1/8 tank before I even try to tackle this.
