HPOP Install How to?

I have had my T500 for about 2 months. I think tomorrow I am going to install it. Any tips , tricks, or helpful procedures? Never changed a HPOP before.
Sick of the CEL coming on

You have to remove the fuel bowl (if you still have it) for good access. Since it's out might as well do a light rebuild on it too (new rubber and leak check). The HPOP has just a couple bolts holding it on on the outside of the front cover and one large bolt on the inside that also holds the drive gear to the pump. Buried under some wiring and grime on the front cover is the access cover to get to the drive gear bolt (DON'T DROP THE BOLT INTO THE MOTOR). not easy to get to but not really hard either with the fan installed. When I did mine I still had the fuel bowl and cam driven fuel pump. Since I was there I also "rebuilt" the fuel bowl and replaced the fuel pump. Also, since I did remove the fan to use air tools, I did the water pump and LPOP as they are right there too. (If you have read my other posts on here then you'll know that I'm pretty lazy and spend a lot of money doing a lot of side work at the same time. Not always necessary).

The install is pretty straight forward there is just a lot of crap in the way. Check/replace your HP hoses at the same time. If they need to be replaced get at least b50 rated lines. The future is leaning biofuels.

Good luck and keep the oil off that Beautiful truck!

I found a write up over on the Nation.

Did it today. Replaced the fuel hoses, cleaned the FPR screen, shimmed the FPR and put it all back together. Waiting on the FORD lid for the Ford fuel filter, then I can fire it up

Darn I've got one of those when I took off my bowl and went e-fuel. Come to think of it didn't you ask about a part number on the e-fuel or something?

Saw your other truck on the trailer on the army. What size tires are those (SRW)?
