HPOP Removal Question

I'm putting the cart before the horse here, but wanted to know if the HPOP can be removed without taking out the fuel bowl assembly? Just finished fixing my MAJOR fuel leak, but it revealed an oil leak under the HPOP. About a drop a minute at idle into the valley right under the rear of the HPOP. I need to diagnose the source, but in the worst case scenario having to remove it, did not want to have to remove the fuel bowl again.
Thanks for the help - Bill

Update - I need to get a better inspection mirror, but the lines appear dry as well as the 9/16 fitting on the back. Not sure of the snap ring area yet.

Nope, the bowl has to come out.

Its not a big deal, I can have the fuel bowl out in probably 5 minutes. If it's been a while you'll have to fight a little more with the hoses to get them to pop loose but you can still pull the bowl out without having to cut the rubber fuel hoses.

Maybe a dumb question. Could the entire resevoir/pump assembly be removed as a unit and then take off the pump? Just curious.

Oh well, wishfull thinking. Got a new inspection mirror tonight and some brake cleaner, so hopefully I will be able to narrow down exactly where the leak is coming from.
Thanks again - Bill

I just did mine, then got mad at it, and converted it to e-fuel....too much crap in the valley....now it's a LOT easier to change the HPOP, and you can actually work on everything else up there too..... also did the EBPV delete, gutted and welded up the pedestal, and converted it to a BD Vacuum brake....all together, I believe this is the way Ford should have built the damn thing to begin with.....

if you have time, some spare dollars, and the inclination, it's a real good move, at least IMO.......
