Remove fuel bowl, y-pipe, then pump. After you've done it the first time, it can be done fairly fast. You need an inch and a quarter wrench I believe. Just do a search and you will find some more detailed instructions. I'm not knowledgeable with the e-fuel.

Follow this LINK to a thread that has Sam Millers fuel pump procedure in it.

A couple of things that I would add to it is that when the pump is loose turn the engine over by hand and let the cam and tappet raise the pump up off of the engine. That way you will not loose the tappet down into the oil pan. Also replace both of the copper washers on the banjo bolt and all the hoses from the filter housing.
