Why did you bypass the relay? The fuel pump should automatically turn on when you turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position.

Using the fuel pump to drain the tank for you is a good method. Guys have been using it for decades... it's probably only a new idea to newbies. ...On second thought, maybe it's a new idea to most people here. Good idea posting it.

Only problem is if you " First, you must disconnect the hose feeding the fuel rail. Squeeze on the plastic clips and then pull on it to disconnect. "

you will get a face full of gas The system is under pressure and you need to relieve the pressure 1st.

Good idea on running the pump, I've done it and it works well.

did this today and works great! I did this so I could install my walbro myself. This technique and the walbro how-to would make a good combination.

works great if you want to wait a year and a day for your pump to push a tank out
