Is the tool required to get the fuel pump out readily available? I know that you can make one but I don't have the equipment or know-how to do it.

Has someone made one they can sell me?

Krytox's tool looks awesome, but I got mine out before I saw that pic. Basically I just used a blunt chisel, and tapped it with a mallet to slowly but surely undo that cap.

Just reread what I wrote, very, very bad. Don't think I'll be sleeping for a while now....

Oh, and mallet/chisel FTW! Didn't make too much of a mess, but I wouldn't do it again unless it was on a wreck.

Yeah I had a crack at it with Krytox's tool and it didn't work, just bent the ribs around that cap.

This isn't on a wreck so I need to do it right

Vice grips onto a fin, hit the vice grips.
That method pioneered by "EL XR8", I haven't tried it yet :lol:
