Lift pump help/advice

One of the trucks at work has been diag. w/a bad lift pump and $1400 to repair at Navistar/Intl. The truck is a 94 International with the the 7.3L Turbo. The boss just bought the lift pump and was considering doing this in house. I know the lift pump is located in the valley on top of the engine. Its very easy to access.....giant front tilt hoods are great. I see 2 or 3 bolts and 2 fuel lines and a wire if I remember right. Is it really that easy to replace? The rubber fuel lines will be getting replaced (they're only a few inches long) Is there o-rings or anything, its it a pain in the butt to get back in...seems TOO easy...not sure why they wanted 1400 and 6-7hours of labor. Normally I wouldn't care but he's willing to let me work on it on Sat. and pay double time in CASH! WOOHOO!!! gotta start saving for that new tranny

It' should not be much of a problem. The Banjo fitting is the hardest part of the installation. Might have to bend a wrench or you may have enough room on that model truck. be carefull with the tappet in the bottom of the pump that rides on the cam shaft. I would change the crush washers on the banjo fitting and all the hoses to the pump. On my pickup truck I had to take the fuel filter housing loose to get some room to work. Good luck.

I reread you post and missed 94 year model part. If this engine is the same as the 94.5 /95 ford what I said is true. But if not I'm may be wrong.

I've replaced several of them and its easier to replace the hoses and get out the pump with the water/fuel separator out of the truck. Be careful about the bottom of the pump braking off in the block, if it does a pick and needle nose plier are your friend.

ok, thanks, I was hoping it would be relatively simple, just wasn't sure if there was any hidden things to know about....didn't know about the crush washer...good to know I'll have him check into that tomorrow. Its kinda nice the International layout gives alot of work area compared to my truck at least. All I have to do is remove the IC lines and air intake and its just sitting there in the valley. I wish Ford was this easy, LOL. Thanks for the info.
