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.

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.
