Angry She marks her territory with fuel

For a while now i have had a fuel leak in my 96 obs. I have replaced all the lines from the lift pump to the bowl...... Nope still leaking! Ordered a complete o-ring rebuild kit for the fuel bowl and installed it..... Nope still leaking tightened the good ole banjo bolt seemed like it may have been a little loose.... You guessed it nope still leaking! My options are getting very low now as are my patients as well. Only thing i can think of now is maybe the lift pump. The only reason i am getting concerned about it is cause i keep getting a vally full of fuel and a lot of it any ideas on what i should do or try or what it may be?

Sounds like the lift pump. They have a weep hole in them. Blow the fuel out of the valley and start the truck and start it and look in the valley.

upgrading the fuel system to a electric regulated return system will let you run bigger injectors and not have the ''defueling'' issue plus all your leaks will be gone.
there are some nice kits out there from beans, sinister diesel has one too i believe

I'd build a DIY electric fuel system for $600 before I spent $1200 on a Bean's system myself.

the kit is just a suggestion.

but if you go to google and search DIY regulated fuel return for these trucks you will find out that alot of people thought they could do it cheaper too but after you buy the lines, fittings, pump, regulater between that and the time getting it together and making a nice bracket like they have in the kit. its way easier and cheaper to buy the kit and put it on yourself

thats just me though
