You have to drop the gas tank just 2 bolts holding the bands. The fuel pump and gas gauge are a single unit which pops right in. Not a bad job at all, just be sure to use some kind of jack on the tank.
NAPA sells the pump/guage unit for about $240.00

The front fenders are connected to the A pillar above the the top hinge, at the bottom of the rocker panel seam, three bolts pass through the hood hinge support in the middle of the fender, four bolts on the radiator support, three vertical bolts on the top radiator brace, and one bolt at the rear of the wheelhouse to the cab body. Yes, the wheelhouse is spot welded to the fender and must be removed with it. Remove all the bolts listed as well as the bolts retaining the splash shield. The splash shield is a plastic liner connected to both the wheelhouse and the fender. Remove the headlight/cornering lamp assembly. The best way I have found to do this is to loosen the bumper to framebrackets and let the bumper assembly sag to gain clearance. If the upper bumper cover is removed to gain the clearance needed you will more than likely need to get a new cover as the nylon clips have a tendency to break during removal. Once the fender/wheelhouse assembly has been removed use a spot weld cutter to separate the wheelhouse from the old fender. Check the new fender for clearance and fit on the vehicle. Make all the needed adjustments to get the fender to fit correctly. Remove the fender and attach the wheelhouse. This should be done by spot welding. It can also be done using bolts. If using bolts place some 3M double stick weather strip adhesive tape in the seam to prevent direct contact of the parts to prevent rattles and squeaks. Drill the new fender to match the holes made by the spot weld cutter in the wheelhouse. Use stainless bolts and lock nuts so that the assembly can be services if needed. I would also recommend using Wurth Rust Inhibitor on all the seams to prevent rust and once cured it is an excellent adhesive and will reduce noise coming from moving body panels. Good Luck. It is not as bad as it sounds. Take your time and it will be worth the effort.

these ar not fun at all. you have to undo the steering column and shaft so the entire unit lays down on the driver seat, then remove all screw bolts or nuts that fasten the dash to the firewall, then slide the dash backwards toward back of truck obviously and you then can get at the black box the heater core is mounted inside of.you will have to then undo the screws on the cover of this bow,take you jeater hoses off from under hood,then remove heater core. the whole job will takeabout 5 hours with good experience, maybe around 8 with little or no experience. I recomend buying a Haines or Chilton manual to follow if you do this your self. the job really isn't hard,just time consuming,and a few tight places to get into.

You must change your spark plugs. If you have already done that then take your your spark plug and rub its upper side on a hard surface, but be careful. now place it on its right place and start your vehicle .Your vehicle will start.

If you have the tools you can change it. Sometimes power steering pumps can be a real bear sometimes they arent so bad.

The filter is inside the tank. could have a fuel leak, thats why it smells. I would ck it cold, turn the key so that the fuel system pressurizes, then follow the lines and look for a leak. ck any joints, and at the injectors.
