In addition to what's already been written: 
1.  When reassembling the fuel lines, smear some grease on the tube itself, the flared portion, and the threads.  You'll be surprised at how easy it goes back together.  I finger tighten mine, then snug them up.  DON'T TIGHTEN REAL TIGHT as the grease greatly increases their slipperiness.  Just tight enough not to leak. 
2.  When changing over the T, just put it in a vice and turn the fuel pump!  Then, put some anti-seize on the threads to guarantee easy removal the next time. 
3.  When you remove the mounting bolt, clean it good and anti-seize it.  Also, when reinstalling the fuel pump, put a dab of grease in the hole where the mounting bolt sits.  Screw it in until it hits the side of the fuel pump.  Then twist and turn the pump until you feel the end of the adjusting screw slide into the divet hole.  Finger tighten then snug it up.  DON'T OVERTIGHTEN THIS ONE, either.
