Hello venerable Bulls ! New platform and now the first thread for me.

The gas tank is leaking and has to be replaced. Any suggestions as to
what kind or just purchase it on Rock Auto?

The bull has about 150k on it, would you recommend changing out the
fuel pump as well?

Frank you for your thoughts and opinions in this matter !!!

Sheila, you are the best ! And still hear posting.:love:

Automender123456, tanks for your advice. Sheila & Automender,
I was leaning that way. I can purchase a complete pump/filter kit
replacement for about a buck fifty.

It will add to the labor cost of the installation but maybe worth it.

In my previous bull, had 325K on it before the rust sent it to the
bone yard but the fuel pump never failed !! Same with the trany
BTW. (y)

Shouldn't add to the labor cost significantly since they have to remove and replace it anyways. They will have to remove possibly the electrical connector. I wouldn't go cheap on the pump.

If they are installing a new tank, part of the job is to install a pump, used or new. The better choice would be new but there should be no increase in labor to do so.

"should be no increase in labor to do so"..This reminds me of a friend who had a honda with a manual transmission that was recalled. Because they had to take the transmission out he asked if he could just pay for new clutch parts and have a new clutch put in wit the tranny. It didnt need it but it had hi miles and was already apart...They told him he would have to pay for thatfull labor ride as if they were doing it from scratch!

Thank you, Kekeye. The censuses is that it is
best to install a new fuel pump.
