    I'm replacing the fuel pump on a 78 bay type 4 engine. Found that the top bolt was a nightmare to get access to and took off the top part of the pump to give me a bit of clearance to use an alley key. Now want to put back just by bolting on the whole pump but my alley key is too fat for the top...
