The o-ring gets cut by a notch in the tank mating surface. There are threads about this. Easy preventive measure is to build up and shape epoxy to smooth that notch out. You need a new o-ring. Available from McMaster-Carr for pennies. Again, documented in other threads.

Click-R clamps can be unlocked with a small flat blade screwdriver, but you really should invest in the proper pliers...available on e-bay among other places. Again, documented in other threads.

Take the pump and jump it to a 12 volt battery to test if it runs. Sometimes a pump frozen with dead fuel can be "shocked" into movement with a direct battery jump start. Can also be submerged in carb cleaner to dissolve the gum.

Filter is available in auto parts stores. Common part number is documented in a prior threads. So is the fuel hose.

Time for a little "Search" and read.

I used to be I just dream about it.
