lift pump

We have recently begun changing ou our fuel pump. We have begun taking the old one. out but it wouldn't come out so I cranked it over which loosened it but it still won't come off. I'm afraid of wrecking something else if I crank it over to many times. All advice would be great

Make sure all hoses are disconnected, banjo bolt removed, the two hold-down bolts are removed and then straight up and out. Be careful not to break off the base or drop the pump tappet into the motor. I usually take the fuel bowl out when replacing the pump (that way I can clean it out, inspect the wiring, and reseal it if necessary plus its easier that way). Cheers!

I recall mine being a sob the first time, but that was years ago. I don't recall the pump tappet being a close fit. Just needed to come straight up.
