Hi bladers

I'm having trouble about placing the fuel pump into the fuel tank. I've put and tightened up the nuts in the correct sequence and torque (shown in service manual 9 lb-ft).

The problem is after placing the pump, gas is leaking and I don't how 'cuz I'm doing things well.

Any advice would be considered.

1st off were exactly is it leaking from? your sure its not coming out your overflow? 2nd i wld go to a honda dealer and buy a new gaskett for around the fuel pump were it to bolts to the tank. it should be a pretty straight forward job if all your doing is swaping the pump.

Yeah I think is the gasket, I ordered one. The leaking is coming from the one side of the pump. I took the pump out due to I was paiting and cleaning the tank.

I just cleaned my fuel pump no more than a week ago and it kept leaking. I just went to oreillys and got gasket sealant for 11$ and sealed it. I was too impatient. Applied it, 30 minutes later I'm driving around and no leaks and no problems. Just my 2 cents
