You will have to get a special tool to remove the fuel lines, but the actual valve should not be difficult to replace.

My 95 has the little plastic clips that love to snap when you pull them off. But thats just at the selector valve it's self, all the other fittings are the quick connect type that need the tool. I don't know if a 97 is the same, but if it is pick up some new clips before you start. Checker has them out near the fuel filters and stuff. The valve is not hard to swap. A good tip is to clamp off all the lines with C-clamps or vice grips before you pull them off so you are not soaked.

Nothing stock left on her and not a nut, bolt, hose, or wire on there that I didn't put where it is.
