Fuel leak

I have a 95 powerstroke that has the leak in the engine valley. Where is the best place to get the fuel bowl o rings? Is there a good writeup? I have not found it. Any other things I should replace? I have 171xxx miles on it, so I assume the fuel pump and some hoses should be replaced.

Try these guys: DieselOrings

The also have a nice writeup on their "Instructions and Information" tab. They also have the hoses, pump, banjo bolt washers, etc. You may be able to find the pump locally cheaper (AutoZone, O'Rielly's, etc). All the pumps are made by Carter even if they are in different labeled boxes. Cheers!

Ok, so I will plan on a pump and the o rings. I think I should also replace any applicable hoses in there. Is standard fuel hose OK, or do I need injection grade hoses?

Definitely injection (and diesel) rated hose. You will need both 5/16" and 3/8". Diesel O-rings has the precut pices on their site as well. Cheers!

Thanks for the help. It looks like a C note and a Saturday and I will be in shape. Is a day long enough to do all that?

Ok, I know this is going to sound as cheap as it gets, but are there discount codes for Guzzles O Rings?

For those needing a fuel pump, Rock Auto (rockauto.com) has the best price I have found.
