Fuel Return Lines

Both of my fuel return lines (flexible lines connected to the fuel bowl regulator?) are pretty badly dry rotted and I want to replace them. Looking for part #'s (Ford or International). Or do you guy's just take them to a hydraulics shop and have them made up? Also, it looks like I will have to pull the A/C pump / vacuum mounts to get at the one fitting? Correct?
Thanks again for all the advice - Bill

the dealership will charge you an arm and a leg for just the rubber fuel lines. which lines are you talking about? Depending which ones, you'll need either a 3/8" or 5/16" 400psi diesel rated rubber fuel line. I'm about to buy some myself actually. I've found that most car shop around me don't carry them, I've had to look towards big rig shops like peterbilt, inland truck parts, etc. Inland doesn't carry 5/16" but they sell the 3/8" for only $4.80/foot. I guarantee Ford will ask for much more. Good luck!

They're the lines that come off of the fuel pressure regulator. They go to the front of each head.

i got some made at a local big rig dealer 13.xx a piece. took my old ones off, yes you need to remove the ac, ps, vacuum pump to get to it, and took them in and sat down and waited while they were made. If you leave everything ac, ps, vacuum pump, on the bracket it unbolts with 4, 1/2 in (i think) bolts slide the assembly towards the front of the truck and they should be plenty of room to get behind them. If i remember right ford wants 20 ish for one and 50ish for the other

Update

Thanks. After much searching I was able to track down the Ford part#'s. F4TZ9D308A & F4TZ9B273A. Your right on the money. $26 & $53. Unfortunately, Navistar no longer carries them, only Ford.
