More info on changing fuel connector
Thank you subforry for the heads up on the Beember Boneyard brass fuel quick disconnect. I did the same job on my '05 LT when the OEM plastic one failed also.
Just a bit of warning when changing out the female half of the connector, the one mounted in the pump flange. The Teflon paste seemed a bit crumbly when I tried to clean it out of the flange threads. I used a syringe to suck some gas out of what I thought was the hose inside the tank feeding that connector to see if any Teflon had fallen inside. Sure enough, not only did I see little bits of Teflon floating in the extracted fuel (just the right size to clog injectors), but I must have taken 50ml out of that cavity. I ended up purging and refilling that cavity a few times before I quit seeing floating Teflon in the syringe.
