PS - Does anyone know if there are any special tools required for removing the pump? Looks like just it just screws in...

Should have 6 screws holding the assy to the tank. Question..if it died, smelled fuel, did you by chance look into the injectors?

At least I hope that works!
On my '88 Mazda truck, I got to mine by tilting its bed. I had too loosen the three big bolts on the driver side and remove the big three bolts on the passenger (tank) side.

You may want a new gasket between tank and the fuel pump/sender assembly.

On my Mazda truck, I replaced the six fuel pump/sender screws with stainless steel hex head metric screws from Ace Hardware.

Plenty of clearance by tilting the bed...

Bolts on top are 8mm and easy to remove.

Holy moly. The original assembly was crap and falling apart. Should probably have pumped the tank cleaned it out, blown the lines with air, and replaced the fuel filter just in case!

Couldn't get the old pump out of its harness, which was crumbling apart anyway, so had to zip tie the new one in place. Cleaned the old assembly with a wire brush... hope this lasts a couple of years!

All told it took around three hours. If it weren't so damn hot it would have gone faster. Hope this helps the OP and others - it was actually a fun job, and the truck is running great. I still have a somewhatfast idle, though the new pump helped. Most of all it's nice to feel the truck's responsiveness back to where it should be, and no more whirring buzzing sounds.

OP. Saw in the other thread you got your fuel pump installed and it all worked out for you - glad it all went well.

Great photos, wonder if accessing the tank on my 2004 Frontier 4-cylinder (and 1998 Frontier) would be essentially the same process??

Hmm - I wonder if the cable ties are resistant to immersion in gasoline over time....I might have used wire to hold that fuel pump in place...
