Re: AC Delco / Delphi fuel pump #'s?
So I was checking out the situation, trying to decide between tipping the bed up, and dropping the tank. When I got underneath, I saw that the hose clamps on the filler hose and the vent hose to the filler tube are both worm-gear clamps. I assume GM would have used those single-use crimp-on clamps at the factory? I'm thinking the tank has been out before, for a fuel pump replacement. I've been planning to replace the pump "just because" it has 160K on it, PO's records didn't list a FP replacement. But he also didn't list a timing chain replacement, and I can clearly see where someone had the cover off (RTV all over).
Am I assuming correctly about the clamps?
Also, I see on Youtube where guys simply lift the front of the bed up, with all but the rearmost bolts out, and those loosened. Sure looks like the bottom/front of the bed would hit the cab unless the bed is also slid backwards?
