    When fastening the fuel baffle to the tank...

    Should the plastic flange on the baffle almost seem to high on the bolts to fasten? Once I torqued the bolts and the flange was nicely seated on the tank but is there supposed to be a little tension in there? I started it up and it ran fine..I'm just curious.

    The top section of the pump module is spring loaded so when you install them just give it a shove downward to compress the spring and all the nuts will go on easily so to answer the question yes thats normal

    Also there is a certain way to install the rubber gasket and if it is not in the correct location it will make it harder to push down the baffle. It is infact spring loaded.

    Ok, thanks guys. I oriented the gasket and the baffle in the correct way, it was just a little "spring-y". Now I know why. Thanks!
