Thanks for the sticky HecDog! My goal was to show that this fuel pump swap is VERY easy and can be done out in the driveway by just about anyone with basic tools. Glad to help out and just returning the favor to the forum as it has helped me out a lot over the past few months.
More DIY's to come...

Great write-up! It's been a big help! My fuel pump failed a week ago...a mile from home. Fortunately, I was able to get it going after about 20 mins and get home safely...it's been dead ever since.

How is the retaining collar attached? Is it threaded? I've tried tapping the notches with a screwdriver, but it won't budge.

Yes it's threaded very tight. Hit the screwdriver with a hammer

Thanks...I've been using a hammer with the screwdriver on multiple notches. I don't want to pound too hard. I'll keep trying to break it loose...if I still can't get it, I'll try to find a tool such as a spanner wrench and see if that works.

If you're having trouble with the hammer and screwdriver method, they make a tool for the job.
