Dissconnect the battery to prevent sparks if you're removing the tank. and remember it can be heavy. I usually drive or drain the tank to just a couple of gallons.
I don't remember what years but some Broncs have a pump in the tank and another on the frame rail, with a resevore.
Good luck, keep us informed.

Your 89 has two electric pumps; low pressure boost pump in fuel tank & a high pressure pump mounted on the driver's side frame

Parts replacement is not trouble shooting, replacement follows trouble shooting
Broncos are MPVs not SUVs
Engines run on fuel, or steam
Motors run on electricity, hydraulic fluid, vacuum, or air
