Fuel pump

Walked into the shop early this morning to the smell of gas. Looked under the Falcon and there's a puddle. Looks like a rubber line has cracked.

I'm assuming this is the fuel pump. Is the fuel under pressure when changing this out or is it simple as popping this off and putting a new hose on and not worrying about too much gas spilling. There's no for a photo or diagram in the shop manual.

Hi Scott, it's not under pressure, but gravity will likely allow gas from your tank and line to dribble out when you remove that rubber hose. I usually have everything cut to size and ready to go, then make quick work of it. A catch pan under the car gets the few dribbles that escape.

Thanks Jeff. Definitely a little more gas than I was expecting. Glad you mentioned the catch pan. After a few contortions and it's good to go. The cracking on the hose was on the sharp bend to the pump. I added a little length to soften that bend (experience from my old bikes - softer bends make shifting a breaking better).
