Fuel pump banjo bolt removal....

I've got my fuel bowl out and now I'm wracking my brain trying to get the banjo bolt off the back side of the fuel pump. I can get an inch and a quarter box end wrench on it but little to no room for movement around the turbo pedistal.... Which I'd really rather not remove....any tricks to this?
Abliged gentlemen.



Never mind. I've got it moving. I have some choice words for some ford engineers....

You got to bend the wrench in 2 places and you got plenty of room

So I got the bolt out and the fuel pump removed no problems there. I'm trying to get the new pump in ( emergency toe amputation on my 14 yo dog stole efuel funds ) and I'm having a hard time (impossible) getting the ring with the hard lines attached to it seated to the pump.... The new pump has the exact same dimensions as the old one. I can't get enough play in the lines to get it pushed back, or up to slide on. Do I need to unbolt the lines from the heads? Any other suggestions?

You can try with the pump bolted down or loosely bolted, but there shouldn't be a big problem getting the banjo bolt to thread in. Hardest part sometimes is keeping the two washers to stay in place. A little bit of grease helps for that. No fuel lines need to be bent or anything like that.

Yeah something's not right because I've spent the better part of the last 5 hours trying to get the bolt to take a thread. I've even had my wife's little hands back there below the turbo and that doesn't help either. The fuel line Y that the bolt goes thru seems to be at an angle and it seems impossible to get everything lined up. I'm going to call it a day and start fresh in the morning. I really really don't want to pull the turbo or have it towed into the shop Monday morning. %^%%+*#}+~€.!|.......

Got back after that dang banjo bolt this morning. With fresh eyes, a little bit of gentle tweaking on the brass Y and my baby's little hands, we got it on. Now to get the fuel bowl on.

Soooo I got it all back together and running (after I discovered I'd forgotten to plug in what I think is the IDM.... 2 wires on the back of the HPOP). Worked out a couple leaks (bad seats on a line off the FPR, or forgot to snug down the clamp at all... Doh!)

But now I've discovered what I guess is what's called the UVCH that's smoking.... Dang if it ain't one thing it's another. How tough are these to rewire? Is it something I can cut and splice in the new connector on the outside of the valve cover? What's a good price on them? And if not getting from napa/autozone where to I order them? It's the one on the back side of the passenger side. Am I going to kill anything by driving it f
