Ford isn't the only one using in-tank pumps; almost all manufacturers are.
First you'll have to find a can or number of cans to hold all the fuel
you're going to remove. You can either siphon it out through the filler hose
(if there isn't an anti-siphon device in it), or try disconnecting the gas
line somewhere where there's rubber tubing. Or just cut the steel line in
front of the tank and use a piece of rubber gas line to repair it when
Got it... saw E350 & processed F350...
If you can get the pump running by banging the tank while cranking - it
can usually be done before a complete failure - get as much fuel into an
approved container/containers from the Schrader valve on the fuel rail.
Hopefully the van will start and the pump will continue to run while
fuel is being drawn off... but a good idea if you don't want a
questionable fuel tap connection running near a hot, running engine.
your going to have a very tough time pumping out 30 plus gallons of gas
through a bad fuel pump.....siphoning out the filler is your best bet.
Siphon it into cans and fill your car, boat, motor cycle, ect up one ot two
cans at a time...hell, sell it to your niegbors at a small loss :)
