Is it possible to replace a fuel sending unit at home
It is possible, but you must be careful with any possible source of fuel vapor ignition, on this vehicle the tank will have to be almost completely drained of fuel.
I find it easier to completely remove a tank rather than fight it in some awkward position. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS MAKE SURE TO COMPLETELY DRAIN THE TANK. I put a tarp on the floor when I drop a tank so there is no chance of a spark if it hits the floor. Once down, it is an easy replacment.
