Disconnect the ground cables from both batteries (you're working near the
starter, and a dropped wrench could prove disasterous if you leave
the batteries connected).
Remove the two banjo fittings, the support bracket bolt (supports the
fuel supply line), electrical connector, then remove the 3 nuts and its out.
Replace the washers that seal the banjos, loosely connect the banjo
fittings while getting everything in place, then install/tighten the 3
nuts. Install/tighten the support bolt bracket, then tighten the banjo
fittings (don't go ape-$#!& on them -- 18 ft lbs is the spec). Reconnect
the battery cables and bleed the fuel system at the injector pump.
The manual specifies that the fuel supply line quick-connect fitting should
be disconnected/reconnected in the process, but I left mine on. It didn't
siphon any fuel, but YMMV.
