If anyone is looking for these 2,3,4 pin connectors, they are MOLEX connectors. They are available from sellers on ebay.

If you need a pin removal tool to remove the pins in those MOLEX connectors one can use some 3/16 inch brake line. You'll need to grind the outside down a little to fit into the connector recess; I've put a 90 degree bend in the brake line about 2 inches from the 'ground down' end so as to get some leverage and grip on it.

Paint the tool orange so it'll stand out in the tool drawer and not end up in the recycle bin.

I've found on several fuel pumps that I purchased that the MOLEX connector already on them that the connector is installed backwards. That's when the pin removal tool is necessary. I suspect that in the field when a generator tech came on a pump with the backwards MOLEX that he just snipped off the connectors on the generator and the pump and put push connectors.

It's a sad story when Facet completes their part of the job and sends it to a third party to install the connectors that the third party can't even install two pins and a connector properly.

For many years, the replacement pumps were sent to the military WITHOUT the plug. No one had a removal tool, other then two CECOM LARS, (in germany, anyway) so the plug from the bad fuel pump was always cut off, and grafted onto the new pump. Now THAT, as stupid.
