Fuel Pump location?

I have 1995 f-350. Where is the fuel pump located? Is there just a lift pump on my engine or is there also a pump in each of my fuel tanks. If there are fuel pumps in each tank how many psi do they pump? I am thinking about taking the stock tanks out (one leaks) and just running my 94 gallon aux. tank. Has anyone done this? Any suggestions would be great! Thanks in advance!

It's on the back of the engine just under the turbo. It can be removed without taking the turbo off.

I'm glad I'm not a mechanic then, since I changed my fuel pump without pulling the turbo. You just need a big f$%^# combination wrench to loosen the banjo bolt on the fuel line under the turbo.

LOL @ glad you're not a mechanic.

I do not believe Rick removed his turbo when he did his fuel pump!

You need to remove your fuel filter housing but NOT your turbo. The big nut (banjo bolt) on the back of the fuel pump can be taken off with a 1 1/4 boxed end wrench. Just fits between the pump and turbo pedestal. It's a PITA but it can be done.

If you consider the fustration of removing the turbo, it is waaaaay easier just to try to work around it. Once you crack loose the banjo bolt, it takes a few minutes of finger banging to get it backed out, and set it under the turbo. A couple taps against the banjo fitting pops it loose, the rest is just gravy.... On reassembly, the banjo bolt is a bit of a pain to line up and start threading, but much easier than the rear turbo pedistal bolts!

And don't let that plunger on the bottom of the fuel pump fall into the block!! Pry that pump up slowly and as straight as you can.
