Fuel pump connector rewire?

For some reason my fuel pump connector on the tank is having an intermittent disconnect. I would have to wiggle the connector and my fuel pump works again though the fuel level sensor always works.

I have tried to carefully pull the plug off the pump connector but the damn thing wont budge, feels like the two connectors melted into one. I have an aeromotive stealth 340 and it does use quite a bit of juice to power the damn thing. Now if my connector is melted together, can I some how break off the plastic connector and wire in another connector with wire leads? Say, breaking off the connector to expose the pins so I can directly solder on some leads with a connector?

At that point most people go with a fuel rated and sealed bulkhead connector. There's a thread something to the effect of "my over the top fuel pump rewire" and I believe that guy did something similar. Maybe search for that thread and see if you get any ideas.

The connector i found was too large to suit my needs, i wanted an conversion and keep my fuel sender. The bulkhead connector actually rated for fuel was over 1" and there isnt enough real estate on a fc lid for that

hmm..if memory is still intact..try this:
Look up Bulkhead connector as a subject and Aaron Cake as a user name.
He showed a pic of his setup.He re-did his sender/fuel tank assembly.
