yes you have to drop the tank. you will also need a fuel line tool to unhook the fuel lines. before you drop the tank see if tou can reach and wiggle the electrical connection on the top of the tank. these pumps have a pigtail issue. please rate

I would check to be on the safe side the fuel filter is going in the right direction. The arrow is pointing towards the engine away from the fuel tank, Then you need to make sure the fuel pump wiring connections are good contact and did not come loose when driving.

Park the vehicle in a place where you’ll have plenty of room to work. If you have access to a lift, that would be great.
Relieve any fuel pressure by removing the fuel cap. Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Pre soaking any required bolts/nuts with WD-40 prior to the job will help also. There are 3 lines and 2 electrical connectors to be removed from the fuel pump, and the filler and vent hoses that need to be removed from the back of the tank. There was also a small hose on the front part of the tank that needs to be removed, but we didn’t see it until we actually started lowering the tank. Just remember where everything hooks back up. Label the lines, if needed take picture with your cell phone.
Start by removing the skid plate, Once the skid plate is off, you’ll have access to the straps that hold the fuel tank on. The forward ******** the Blazer will pretty be rusted and not very stout. It's basically formed as a strap that ended in a threaded bolt and in most will end up breaking trying to remove it. Supported the tank with a floor jack with a transmission removal assembly on it.
You easily fixed the broken strap problem by welding a bolt to the strap. Once all the straps were loose, lower the tank just enough to get better access to the lines and connectors leading to the fuel pump. There is not much room to get in there on a Blazer.
Once the tank is off, it’s a good time to look around in that area to see if there are any other problems that may need to be addressed.
If you are going to replace the fuel pump here's how to do it. Before removing the fuel pump, be sure to clean off all the junk that has collected around it.
Replacing the float and sending unit is fairly simple. Just pay attention to how the old parts are removed, and install the new parts in reverse order. Be sure to get the wiring routed correctly and install the new seal that comes with the kit. The sock filter on the bottom of the pump was just a little bit clogged, so we made a trip to the auto parts store to get a new one. Luckily they had one that would match up.
While we had the tank off, siphoned what fuel was in there and cleaned out the tank really well.
The installation is basically just a reverse of the removal. Be prepared to take quite a bit of time for this project. It took much longer that I expected. Somewhere around 6-7 hours, but that’s including several little problems, getting propane for BBQ lunch, and making a trip to the parts store for a new sock filter for the bottom of the pump. And Mom and dad showing up.
Good luck and hope this help

The only way I know of to get the diagram you are looking for is to acquire a "build book". Even dealer service manuals don't have this diagram. I got one from faxonautoliterature for $49 plus shipping. A better bet would be to find a spot on either end of the leak where you can work on it easily and work from there. Hope this helps.
