1995 f250 fuel leak at blue hose

was just hoping someone know the answer on here i have a fuel leak at the blue hose that goes under the fuel bowl, i believe that it goes into the lift pump if im right. my question is that it appears to go from the lift pump under the fuel bowl and up the front of the fuel bowl into the fuel control manifold if im right. now is that the same blue hose? i can't tell if it's all 1 hose or it goes into something under the bowl and that is ANOTHER blue hose coming out the front.

There are three blue hoses down there. As long as you're in there bustin' your knuckles and getting diesel in the open skin , you may as well replace them all.

^^^^^, You will have to remove the bowl to get at the one you are talking about. Make sure you have already attached it to the bowl when reinstalling. They are pretty cheap and already cut to length at dieselorings.com. Just cut the leaky one in half instead of of try to unclamp it out of there.

If you are pulling the fuel bowl it is much easier to work on out than in. The old O-rings in the fuel bowl were not made for the ultra low sulphur fuel now being used and they breakdown.

The whole o-ring kit is only $15 for the blue flourosilicone set.

If you have worm gear clamps on those hoses I would replace them too. Bill aka guzzle at dieselorings was really helpful to me on the phone
