    help replacing fuel pump in 93 lt1 camaro...

    Can anyone here supply me with pics and/or measurements of where to cut on a 93 camaro to replace the fuel pump? It's needed replacing for quite some time but I never felt like dishing out the $300 or whatever it would cost to have it done "right." I know people can cut out a small piece from the back seat or trunk area, so I need to know exactly where to do it. Hopefully the fuel line won't get sliced by mistake...

    you can do it that way, but really, its just 2 bolts that holds the entire tank in.

    put the car on jack stands, spray the bolts and threads with pb for a hour or so. get a elect impact and buzz em out.

    make sure the tank is as close to empty as you can.


    only thing that can fuck you is if the bolts break off. weve done a few cars older than yours, with no issues. just use alot of PB blaster and you'll be fine

    I thought you had to drop the rearend to get the tank out...
    At least that's how I saw my buddy's dad do his '97 z28.

    Its a lot harder than that bean the rear has to almost come out of the car if its on a lift. If on the ground it would have to come all out. Its a bitch !

    The big problem is it has a metal filler neck and has to twist and turn almost completly over when coming out.

    I thought the same thing but after droping a few and hours doing it taking the rear out brake lines and every thing ill cut them from now on. Its just a 8 inch by 12 inch hole and then a patch over it and it doesn't hurt anything. Do a search on ls1 tech should bring up what u need.

    Ive had mine out 4-5 times out of the 85 and the 97 and the only thing I dropped was panhard and brace remove bottom of the shocks and lowered the rearend. Dont get me wrong it sucked.

    Looks as if cutting the sheetmetal would be the easiest solution, and it wouldnt take nothing to rivet a peice of sheetmetal back over that.

    I've heard bad stories about both sides. Someone told me their son did it by cutting and it never was the same again...but i dont see what could go wrong as long as you cont cut the tank or a line. Flippy, was that pic of yours cut or have you dropped the rearend each time? I don't care to drop 100 bucks for a pump but paying $300 in labor to drop the rear kinda hurts. Decisions, decisions...
