As he said above. There is a key way for the fuel pump. More than likely you have the pump turned clockwise. Loosen the lock ring a little bit and turn the pump counter-clockwise until you feel it kinda snap in place. Then secure the lock ring.

You probably messed up the float in the tank. I did that to mine but I have not fixed it yet.

i found it was best to drop the tank completely adn then get to the pump assembly.....contrary to the way it sounds its wicked easy...2 bolts and loosen the clamp on the filler neck and the tank comes down...much easier to do it with 2 guy vs one...put a jack under the tank and make sure its near empty and the bitch comes right down..............

Mine is off too Its just not bad enough for me to go through all the effort to move it. My techgauge says i have 12.5 gallons for like 25-30 miles I usually filll up before i hit the fuel light anyways.
