    When I was watching this video, I actually did say your forgetting the coil springs, and thought I hope it doesn't take too long for him to realize what he missed ! But another great video Eric !

    1st day on the job, we forgive you. 😄😄

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Larry Pallone says:

    I was wondering when you were going to remember to put the spring’s back in …..

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars David Kendrick says:

    You did say mini corvette. Perhaps you were thinking cross leafs.

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel Emanuelsson says:

    When you see when others are working and it goes wrong, you wait for how long before you will discover it HAHAHA;)

    Just a brief DUH HUH moment……….

    I became an expert at Fbody pumps on my old IROC. After they started putting ethanol in fuel, I went through 3 pumps in 5 years. The last time I figured I'd replace the tank while I was at it. Only one available was a 250 dollar Chinese tank from Spectra. Of course 1st one didn't match the angle of the filler neck at all. 2nd one was a lil better, but in the end we still had to trim a little where the neck went through the body. Oh yea and 82-92 gas caps didn't fit anymore. I shouldn't have touched it, but I kept thinking new, new, new.

    I won as it turns out.

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jerry Benton says:

    As you were assembling I was sitting here thinking …. springs … springs … DUDE! … springs!

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Darrell Hendrix says:

    Springs ? Dont need no stinkin springs …..

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Lucy says:

    Love your video! Don’t sweat it 🤣

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Lucy says:

    Definitely funny! Don’t sweat it! Haha 😂

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Ward says:

    Way to spring back…lol

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Guy Fawkes says:

    I noticed it, but only because I did it myself when I dropped my tank from my 97 camaro. I just thought to myself, "he's gonna be happy when he realizes what he just did" lol. When I did it out was on the ground. You're doing it on a lift. Much easier than mine was!!

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ross Voss says:

    when stuff goes back together way to easy, STOP, you forgot something. lol

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ahmad Ghosheh says:

    Most other Youtubers would have cut 30 minutes of this video and said install is the reverse. But, I really like all of it. Don't edit anything please,it's part 9f the fun and enjoyment.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul ellis says:

    rookie mistake

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wes c says:

    The camera shot missed was when the customer got the bill.

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ron Hanisco says:

    Ha, ha ,ha.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Beilman says:

    Pan hard bar sounds good to me

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars gple87 says:

    Lol, all that GM shat talking and you forgot the springs. 🤣

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Viking 2121 says:

    I'm mad at ya! no not really, my 92 Silverado 5.7 tbi makes around 200hp, 300lb torque, but its reliable, 400k miles on the clock and I still haul a 16 foot box trailer with it everyday, the 3.92 gears and the extra leaf helps a lot, still feels a lot stronger than our crappy 5.4 2v 07 e350 ford van that screams at 5k rpm with any load on it on the turn pike…

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dave Suddreth says:

    Why not cut an access panel under the back seat. Pull carpet back and cut very thin so you don’t hit any lines and now you have a new access panel. Take the pump out. Put a new one in and bolt a new access panel cover and put the carpet back. Seems like a lot of work to drop the whole rear end

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robin Sattahip says:

    That pump has not seen daylight in 30 years and neither has GM.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don ——. says:

    Note to self: Do not buy an 80’s firebird.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars scott carr says:

    Yeah, when you were starting to put bolts back in the shockeys I said "don't forget the springs", it took a couple of minutes before you said ahh, the springs. What a bitch to pull the whole fuel tank out, to replace the fuel pump.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shawnti Aquino says:

    This is one of the most cleanest vehicle I seen you work on and I been watch your channel for a long time. That filler neck is one crazy design and on top of that most if not all some kind of aftermarket solid welded exhaust thank you for your great video

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 926Trucker says:

    lol….Sitting here eating supper thinkin….That old Bird gonna ride super rough when you get done there Eric. Better check them seatbelts!

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars SHOTGUNJIM1 Items of interest says:

    I thought that was funny not putting the springs in, because I noticed you didn't.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Tom Kimbrel says:

    Just to prove that you too are human like the rest of us😁😃😌!

    A little Vaseline on the gasket helps.

    That nano impact is the shit, gonna get me one!!

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars G Kotten says:

    When I was a kid, I made an access panel in mine. 87 Camaro 2.8 multiport, had a whole 187hp at its best lol good shit

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Obwan Kenobi says:

    My 97 camaro z28 also idles at 30psi. No power problem.
    I had a problem where it wouldn't hold fuel pressure. You'd key it on it it would hit 40psi then drop to 5, key again and drop to 20, again it would hold at 40. When it wasnt holding pressure the car wouldn't run, almost like it was out if fuel. This happened twice, broke down at the gas station, towed it to the garage – of course when i got there it started and ran perfectly, they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Ran it for half and hour. went another year like that and died in the road again a block from my house. Fortunately it was still not running the next day when i put a gauge on it to see the above problem. No pressure hold car barely ran, 3 time of keying it on held pressure and ran fine again.
    I replace the fuel pressure regulator as i suspected it was sticking open snd bleeding off pressure.
    Idk the true mileage on the car, i bought it when it was a year old with an oval hole thru the windshield and no hood – i suspect a flying deer injury lol. But it either has 26k miles or 126k miles. Looks like it came out if the showroom under the hood and on the chassis – no faded paint. But i think i should put a fuel pump access door in just in case.
    Did you ever see a case like that
    where the pressure regulator sticks and bleeds off the fuel pressure?
    Its anLt1 V8

    Three years later I'm seeing this video for the first time and I'm yelling "the springs! The springs!" Love your videos. Found several videos for each of the cars we own. Thank you! You guys rock!

    I was yelling at the screen but as usual you didn't hear me….. LMAO, but major respect for leaving the problems you have in the video, makes us happy to see its not just us who makes mistakes, great video as always.

    This video adds some "spring" to your step. We've all done that kind of thing. "Experience is what you get when you were expecting something else." Shakespeare
