Yea mine was pretty nasty also. So I decided I would clean it last week. I had to replace the fuel heater in the bowl anyways, so i thought no big deal. Well I had to build a socket to take the fuel filter Keeper up out of the bowl. Not sure of the real name on that but it is a black plasic stud. Well BECAREFULL LEFT HAND threads. Yes I found out the hard way, or at least they are left handed on a 1994.. So it is kinda time consuming. And just FYI it takes a 7/8 deep well socket to loosen the stud. Has to be approximately 5 inhes or longer to reach the nut on the bottom. So I wish you luck if you temp it. I had to build my tool. I used a 3/4 drive, 7/8 deep well and it wasn't long enough so I welded a piece of 3/4 or so pipe on the socket, then welded a nut on it so i could turn the socket.

I tried putting a hose and connecting it to a mighty vac bleeder, and it didnt work so well, you have to remove the fuel bowl, or make a tool to take out the center fuel filter post as stated above, have also heard of people bending a cheap wrench into a crows foot to take it out too.

Get a 7/8 crows foot, it will work like a charm! It is very important to clean that bowl out as the sand and gunk can & will eat a hole in the bottom of the bowl. You might consider replacing your fuel lines while you have it off. Ford has a set that is pre-cut. If you do decide to replace them let me know, I believe I still have the packages they came in out in my garage.

I just replaced the one in my truck. I wound up replacing the complete assembly which turned out to a good bit cheaper than buying separate components. The assembly comes with a new bowl and EVERYTHING that hangs on or is inside of it, i.e. FPR, sensors, drain valve assembly, wiring, filter, heater (old style), and a new cap.

I would JB weld it for now and wait to see if you can find one on ebay. I hate to admit it, but if the surface is preped correctly it is amazing how good of a 1/2 a$$ fix JB really is. If the hole is on a flat surface drill a hole into it large enough to put a nut and bolt through it silconed up. Thats a DIY fix so you dont need to spend all the money on a new bowl!!
