  • Heat gun might be way too hot. It didn't take much with the hair drier. I commandeer the wife's old hair dries for the shop (they get lots of use).

      • I changed to the AirTek E2044 in my 2001 PS209 about a week ago and finally lake tested last weekend and it did fine. I bought the 8" corregated black hose noted in another thread in case I needed it. However, like others, I CAREFULLY removed the single use clamp from the pump and re-used my smooth original fuel line. Reusing the line is the key becasue then you don't have to mess with the clamp on the regulator side of the line at all.

        I think if I had simply cut the line off a the pump and tried to re-use, it would have been too short and would have kinked. It was quite stiff.

        Also, for the external fuel lines, my system had the return line, so I had to use two different size removal tools. I bought a set of about 10 of them for $10 from Advance Auto Parts when I bought the AirTek pump. The pump was $80. I also bought a new filter and gasket ahead of time from MC. I cleaned and reused the bolts/washers using a little Hondabond (silicone).

        • Approx $30 for the Airtex pump here: http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php Search 1992 Ford Crown Victoria. Heck, they even have the Bosch one for only $78.

          • I just picked up the pump at autozone.
            After looking at the pump. Why cant I just pull out manifold for pump and never unhjook the fuel line to the injectors ?
            Looks like I may be able to change without unhooking the orange fuel line outside of tank ?

              You MAY be able to do that. Mine didn't really have a lot of slack in the orange lines. The tools make it pretty easy to remove the lines though. You'll find that you have to really move the unit around a lot...turn it over to get a good angle to R&R the pump, etc. Plus this thing hold quite a lot of fuel that you may dump all over the place. I'm sure I would've spilled fuel all over several times if I had not remvoed the unit and emptied it. It just makes the job a WHOLE LOT easier with the small effort to unhook and remove the unit to work on it. HTH.

              • It would be a pain to work on it with the orange fuel line still attached, but suspect you could do it. There really isn't much to unhook (vent "T", a couple of color-coded connectors and the fuel line). Twisting and whatnot that will accompany swapping the pump while the fuel line is attached may compromise the quick connect and/or the seals/rings. That little $3 plastic tool makes it come off in a second (stores nicely in your glovebox with your spare pump), so I'd strongly rec removing it instead of risking tweaking it.

                • Just picked up the 3 doller tool so I can remove it and save my brain cells from the gas fumes.

                  Thought about and then thought about it twice so..... figured better not F around and have what I need.

                        • Bought the Airtex E2044 but it's about 1" shorter than the Carter pump. How do I do get it to seat properly at the bottom of the fuel pump assembly? Seems like the bottom of the fuel pump it will just wiggle around the bottom of the assembly.

                            I sure don't remember my E2044 being an inch shorter. From what i recall, it was almost identical in physical size.

                            • It's the cylindrical metal canister that's 1 3/8" shorter in the E2044 than the Carter. 2 5/8 long on the E2044 and 4" on the Carter 52018056. Makes using the same holding fixture impossible. Maybe I have an odd ball fuel pump. 99 Marister 330 LTR

                                I think that the Carter pump in question for folks on this thread is marked "323 Made in USA" and then says "Carter 3001A" or something. Not sure what you have there. 1999 may be different because the evo boats started with the 2001 year, and there may have been some design changes with the internal pump system. Look at the pictures earlier in this thread. My 2001 had the same Carter shown here...same size as the E2044.
