Change IPR.

Going to change my IPR. Is this a difficult surgery? I have a '95 with a build date of April, '95. I do know it makes a difference on which one I buy. I've read before about needing to make a deep socket "work". Anyone's personal experience is appreciated.

Re: Change IPR.

once you get the fuel bowl/reg assembly out, its real easy. IIRC, a standard socket will work. This is a 'kill lots of birds with one stone' deal, so do your fuel bowl cleanup, hose replacements, etc. while you're in there.

The 94-95 IPRs are different from 96-97. If you are having IPR issues, be sure that the wiring harness to the IPR is in good shape. These get hosed down with fuel/oil over the years and can come apart, often giving a poor power supply. The IPR may just need orings for hard /no start issues.

Re: Change IPR.

So, is it as simple as removing fuel bowl, draining hpop, removing and replacing? When I buy a new solenoid, will it come with everything I need to make the change?

FWIW the last time I did mine all I needed were two boxed end wrenches. I didn't pull the fuel bowl at all. It is very tight but it can be done. The hardest part is getting the tin nut started back on.
