Please help desperate noob - 1993 F250 7.3 Fuel Lines

So I recently picked up a 1993 F250 Pre-turbo diesel. Immediately noticed some bad leaking from the fuel lines/tank. Brought it in to my mechanic and he confirmed that the lines are shot. He told me he is having a hard time finding the parts I need to do this fix.

My question is, does anyone know where I could find any kits or the parts I need to fix this beast. He says I need:
1. Fuel lines from rear tank up to the switches/switch valve with all fittings
2. Fuel lines from side tank up to the switches/switch valve with all fittings
3. Sending unit for the side tank

I called some places last week and was told by one that they would have the parts I need, only to have my mechanic call them today and tell him they don't

Then I tried LMC Truck and they didn't have them and couldn't offer any guidance.

I checked the ford parts site and they say the parts aren't available.

I also called a local Ford Dealer and they said they couldn't get them either.

I'm getting a bit discouraged here and hopefully some kind people out there would be able to help me out a bit.
