Fuel fix suggestions

Dear Powerstrokers,

I really appreciate all the great forums to help me pinpoint my problems. I have a fuel leaking coming from somewhere around the fuel pump, I am going to do the clean everything and watch for an hour suggestion I just read to pinpoint. I also have a broken bolt attached to the exhaust valve thinger after the turbo. so I figure I am going to just do a large overhaul of the valley area since I found so many problems there. I was just wondering since the truck is still driving fine should I preplace the pump as well since it is already out. It is the original pump on the truck from 96 but seems to work fine. So I was thinking replace all the little blue hoses and orings in that area. Probably clean and reuse the medal banjo gaskets, or should I replace those as well? Any suggestions on what parts I should actually order whould be helpful, and mainly what I am looking for. Also I would like to announce I am brand new to the diesel community and to the forum, so thank you for your support.

I am fairly new to this also but I have had a number of fuel leaks in the valley of mine. I had a shop work on it, they replaced the fuel pump and a number of the fuel lines around the bowl. You may want to research the the fuel pump install, apparently there is a rod on the fuel pump that can fall down in the engine. I couldn't believe my truck was running fine with all the fuel leaks.

Trying to afford modifying 2 vehicles is tough!

Newbie here too. Just finished replacing fuel pump, all rubber hoses, clamps and entire fuel bowl assembly. Went from leaking like crazy to dry as a bone. Although it revealed a HPOP leak. DOH!!! Bob at dieselorings.com is the MAN! Very helpful and has all the parts you'll need.
