Fuel Bowl tip

Just wanted to pass this along and hopefully save someone some time.

I went to change my fuel filter today and found a LOT of gunk in the bowl.
I decided to take the fuel bowl off to clean it out.
After disconnecting the 4 lines lines, ebp sensor wire and the fuel heater plug, I took the 2 bolts out that go through the HPOP. I found it easier to ues a ratchet wrench to loosen these bolts. There is the EBP sensor there by the passenger side bolt. You should not have to remove this to get the fuel bowl out. Take out drivers side bolt first (not all the way out, just out of the bowl housing threads) and then start on the passenger side and slowly pull the bowl back as you loosen the bolt.

Remove the drain line and take the bowl out. I found the original fuel heater wire broke off of the tabs and decided to replace it. Also, the sleeves/gaskets on the fuel lines should be replaced.
This was the hardest part of the project. A few of the old sleeves were pretty tough to get off of the lines. After several attempts with about every tool in my box, I finally found on old dental pick (kind of s shaped) and I was able to pick out the old sleeves.
Then I cleaned the threads really good to get any remaining rubber remiaing out.
Applied some clean fuel to all new gaskets/sleeves and installed. Re-assembled and hooked up both plugs and worked perfect but was not the problem I was trying to solve
