RRC Fuel Pump Installation
I have officially inhaled gasoline vapors for 2.5 hours, and I need help. (If I even get close to the fireworks tonight, I might explode)
I bought a 92 RRC with a bad fuel pump, after addressing the wiring issues, I hooked up the new fuel pump outside the tank, and it works great.
However, when installing the new fuel pump in the tank, I can't get the red locking ring to completely lock. Is this normal that this is a challenge? Or am I doing something wrong.
The fuel pump sticks out a little, which just like the previous pump, I can press down, the seal seems to be depressing right, but when I get the locking ring on there, I can get it to tighten, however, it seems like it doesn't follow the threads right, and eventually it pops right up. ( Especially if I try to tighten it to much.. which is obviously not normal since it took me forever to get this locking ring of). The threads however, on both the fuel tank, and locking ring are still great...
Can you guys look at the pictures, and see if the seal is on there right? or if you see something wrong?
I'll try again tomorrow, but I'm wondering if this is supposed to be a challenge?
