Fuel pump trap door..

I am getting ready to do my fuel pump on the 94 90. Ive done them on discos and rrs. The 90 doesnt have the trap door right? I need to drop the tank?

Thanks,
Mike

Correct you need to drop the tank. It's not terribly hard unless you start breaking bolts, so put something like PBBlaster on them well in advance (multiple treatments). Be prepared to remove rust and paint while you have the tank out as well.

I'm doing the same on my 110 this week (but just dropping the tank so I can paint the xmember). This is day 2 of PB Blaster, letting it soak in good. But yes ou may want to paint the xmember while you have it all apart.

I plan to post a step-by-step with pics when I do my tank removal.

Looking forward to your post. When I did mine I had the waxoyl kit out.... I cleaned up the fuel tank skit plate and waxoyled it prior to installing it. I also had my crossmember urethane primed and painted last year and it still looks great. I also sprayed the inside of the frame with the waxoyl kit as well...

There's no inspection panel in a Defender, the pump/sender is only accessible by dropping the tank

Although, there is an Australian conversion kit available to create an inspection hole/panel -

Land Rover Defender Td5 owners know it: The fuel pump is prone to stop working in the bush - it's Murphy's Law...

Access to the fuel pump is only possible by lowering the fuel tank, and it involves hours of tedious work. Mulgo's Fuel Pump Inspection Panel, installed in the rear floor of your vehicle, allows for access to the fuel pump from above, thus eliminating the need to dismount the fuel tank entirely.

Not only beneficial when the fuel pump breaks down, but also practical to check its proper functioning when preparing for an extended trip.

* Made from 3mm aluminium
* Can be fitted with roller drawer systems
* Allows access to the fuel pump from the boot
* Installation requires cutting a hole in the floor
* Delivered with detailed installation instructions

It doesn't look too difficult to fabricate something similar yourself.
