You are watching: 2007 polaris ranger 700 xp fuel pump replacement


I am looking into a problem that a relative is having with his 2007 ranger 700xp. It is starting and idles good but will not get above about 4000 rpm and is just bogging down. I have searched on forums and everything is pointing to a fuel issue. I have not tested the fuel pressure yet and plan on doing it soon. I am guessing the pump is weak or the screen is clogged. I have seen on the forums that they can remove the fuel pump from the tank. The only things is all the threads where they are removing the pump, the tank has a threaded nut to unscrew. This tank has rivets that is holding the fuel pump to the tank. Has anyone successfully removed the pump assy from the style of tank that we are dealing with?? Any help would be appreciated.

The factory 2007 has screws in the top of the tank that secures the fuel pump assembly. Is this not the case with yours al ? The "replacement " tanks, the ones Polaris MADE you buy to get a new 20 dollar fuel pump. were of a screw in type. If you have rivets, which I have never seen on umpteen 700 Rangers, you would have to drill them out and clean out the tank, replace the pump (about 17 dollars from ALBA RACING on EBAY) .

It definitely has rivets. I checked twice and then had my uncle check it again after I didn"t see any posts about rivets holding it on. I have a fuel pump coming for it and will drill the rivets out to get at the pump. We are going to have to figure to a way to reattach it to the tank when the time comes.

Mine was attached to the tank with 6 Phillips head screws. Since I bought the Ranger used I have no idea if it had been replaced by the previous owner but it appeared to be original. There were threaded inserts molded into the tank. I had replaced the pump in may of this year but it quit working again 2 weeks ago. I removed the assembly and the metal part was rusted like it had been exposed to moisture so I have no clue as to where the moisture entered the tank unless it was thru the vent tube. 2 of the 3 pins on the wire harness on the tank side of the assembly had broken off. Tried to locate a used one thru a salvage yard but no luck.One wanted to sell the pump & tank as a unit for $200 and the other was waiting on one to arrive. Both are located in South Georgia & I live outside Atlanta so no go. I think a figured out a way to repair the harness. Also I have always used non ethanol gas I will update with pics later if it works.
