Drain the tank, disconnect all the lines and fittings, drop the rear axle, drop the tank, install new pump, re-install tank, etc. About 10-12 hours of work. Or you can google the trapdoor mod. You pull back the carpet in the trunk and cut a hole in the metal above the tank. A lot faster and easier.
