you will need to buy some fuel line clamps which can pinch the hose and lock it (2) of them...yours is NOT an in the tank pump, but snuzzled up to the bottom...'bout a 45 minute job if you've got a good lift or 20 ton jack or larger~ they don't make them like this anymore a tumble town fireball will happen because the fuel pressure does not have a ASD to turn off the fuel pressure~

'bout this time Honda moved ALL pumps in-tank for safety purposes~

researching....it was 1990 on the ASD is commonly used for the HIGH pressure fuel delivery, yours is sort of a mid-level...do you have the Jetronic-k fuel injection on your 6 cylinder?

set of the special hose piching clamps are about ten bucks~ http://www.amazon.com/Tool-Aid-19780-Pinching- Pliers/dp/B007QV2CI4/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1372205355&sr=8- 11&keywords=clamp+pliers

happy helpin' none-the-less hope you found this educational or stupid.~
