Without the PMD remote kit:
With PMD remote kit:
DO NOT remove the old PMD. It is a tough job that requires you to remove the IP. In doing so, you might break injector lines, need to re-time the engine with a Tech II and etc. Just unclip the engine wire harness connection to the PMD and connect it to the new remote cable setup.
I actually bypassed my GOOD PMD and use the OEM PMD on the IP as an emergency spare if my remote PMD dies. I already had to do this maneuver once this year (I bought a used PMD for my remote).
It is possible to remove the PMD without removing the injection pump. It takes a little patience and being a little creative with a short Torx bit and a gear wrench but it IS possible. The whole removing the injection pump is a myth if you have an imagination, patience and the right tools. Been there, done that.
Well, to add - there is another (ungraceful) way to remove the PMD. I did do this once, and it worked.
Take a very thin putty knife, one that has the tang (using a knife term) where the entire shaft has metal with wooden handles riveted onto it.
Then, take a dead blow hammer, the putty knife, and literally shear the PMD screws off of the PMD.
Again, it's very ungraceful. But it does work.
