Roadsmith Trike Auxiliary Fuel Pump
I have seen a lot of operational questions on this topic, but none about R&R an auxiliary fuel pump. I just bought a 2007 Wing with the 5 gallon auxiliary tank. It had 7,500 miles on it and the guy I got it from got it from a friend's wife after he passed. The problem was it had sat for years. The first stop was the Honda shop for a full service and total inspection. I had put some fuel and seafoam in the tank and took it for a ride to slosh it around, then had Honda empty and clean the tank. When I picked it up, they said the pump condition was questionable, but they didn't,t test it after cleaning the tank. No time to test right then, so I brought it home. Well, needless to say, it won't transfer. I have two lights, hear an audible click when I turn it on when on acc. When running the trike, nothing transfers. I rode 5 minut.es, the needle never moved.
I'm not a mechanic, but a pretty good parts changer. The plan is to clamp off the fuel line, remove the pump, make sure gas is getting to it, then replace the pump. The problem I have as a "parts changer" is knowing the best way to access the pump. Step one, find it. Once I know where it is, what is the best way to access it? I don`t have a lift, so a cheap floor jack and stands are my only option, if needed. Any advice would be appreciated.
