Fuel pump / tank access measurement
« on: November 03, 2017, 05:48:25 PM »
Does anyone have the distance measurement from the center of the rear axle to the center of the tank fuel pump access for a 2001 F53?  I've seen the chassis diagram and measurements but they are too blurry to read.  I want to cut an access hole in the floor (Justin Case).

I can't answer your question, but I think I would tell Justin to take a hike.  I might mark the spot and wait until Bro Knit showed up!

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.

While you are at it might just as well cut a hole as big as possible, as often as you will have to access the fuel pump it should be vey handy. Or not!!!!! :-\

Old racer-----That's what I am going to do.  Thought it would be easier than dropping the tank.  But I want to get the location as close as possible instead of having a 12" square hole in the wrong spot.

Not that hard to drop the fuel tank. Pump out the fuel to lighten it up. I use my motorcycle jack to lower it.

Cutting a hole you risk cutting the fuel line and compromise the integrity of the floor.

That was meant to be tongue-in-cheek, I would not really consider an access hole to fix a problem which would rarely occur, and logically be fixed by the regular method of dropping the tank.
