Fuel pump removal

I have taken my tank off and am asking if thereís a trick to removing the fuel pump, itís a tight fit but tried all angles to get it out and donít want to force it . It should be simple I know - what am I doing wrong ?

You just gotta keep wiggling till you find the right position to pull it out. I've had a few of them out now, they will fit.
