Fuel Line Replacement

Does anyone know where you can purchase the fuel supply and return line for a 96, I have looked far and wide and can not locate replacements, I am wondering if these are something you have to make like brake lines? Also where these lines connect to the flexable rubber line there are some funky connectors, I pulled off the clip and tried to pull the two lines a part but was unable, does anyone know how to get these apart? Any help will be much appreciated.

Ford parts department. You could go to a hose shop and get something better, if you are inclined.

I guess I should of mentioned that I searched the internet far and wide, but I did look at Ford's parts catalog online and it did not get into fuel lines at least for the diesel engine. I was thinking that International might have something that would help me out, since they made the engine. The place I work has a account with a local International dealer. Thanks for the sugestions.

International made the motor, Ford made the fuel filter and lines. (Ford wanted lots of service visits from fuel problems).

Takes a tool to slip over the small line and into the bigger line and release a spring so they come apart. Tool can be had at any parts place.

Nothing stock left on her and not a nut, bolt, hose, or wire on there that I didn't put where it is.

Yup, takes the same connector as an A/C hose does and most auto parts store carry them.

As far as replacement steel lines you might try LMC truck.

Same type but a smaller size then A/C line, best to buy a complete set.

Good thinking on the LMC truck.
