HPOP swap...

I usually just dig in and tackle something new, but I only have an afternoon to change HPOP on Tuesday before I head back to work, then leave for buck season.

How long to swap the HPOP? I'm installing a used 17* pump, and have all new o-rings and gaskets. No more than a couple hours I'm thinking? Any tips?

Only tip I can give is to try and pump out the HPOP reservoir first or you'll end up with a close to a quart of oil in the valley. Also may be pretty difficult if not impossible without removing the fuel bowl, unless you got e-fuel already.

Half a day for the first time, shorter next time as you will be better at it and you will have changed to E-Fuel . You should pull the fuel bowl to do this.

Crack HPO lines at the HPOP, pull fuel bowl, drain/suck oil from the HPOP sump to keep things from becoming a mess, remove sump cover, remove HPOP drive gear access cover from front cover to access drive gear bolt, carefully remove bolt so as not to drop it into the front cover, slip off gear, remove HPOP retention bolts (I believe there are two) from the exterior of the front cover, remove HPO lines, unplug IPR, carefully remove HPOP toward the rear.

Yeah, sucks to pull the fuel bowl, but at least it's pretty quick. All my hoses are new.

Thanks for the link!

You can use a shop vac to suck the oil from the HPOP res by building a simple, oversized Mityvac style setup. I used to have pics of my setup but... drill 2 holes in a jar lid or other container (I used an old pickle jar) and poke hoses into them. Connect one hose to the shop vac and run the other into the HPO reservoir. Seal it up as best you can, fire up the shop vac and watch it work. It's really not that bad of a job, I did it in a couple hours in the dark one night.

Good tip, was going to buy a vacuum pump tomorrow. I'll give this a try. Thanks!


I also have a severely smashed thumb, was off for a week. Went back to work yesterday, hoping I didn't pop a fire. It HURTS.

The hand vacuum pumps used to change oil in boats works very well.
Something like this but u can find them less expensive.

Get all new fuel lines before you start. Without a doubt you will screw them up when you remove the bowl

I've pulled many different bowls many different times and never damaged a line, trucks ranging from 150k to 250k miles and several of them were still running OEM fuel lines. You just have to be careful. Besides, OP already said his fuel lines are new.
