Diesel fumes in cab, leak in well, dealer says I need to replace the whole fuel bowl

...and I'm calling BS He said the bowl is cracked, that thats a common problem with 7.3s. and it's an expensive repair that takes about four hours.

I'm thinking I need to get a fuel bowl rebuild kit from Guzzle's and save the $200.00 + for a new bowl plus another $2-$300.00 labor. How does a metal bowl crack? Has anyone heard of this "common problem"?

why don't you just brake clean it all off good and run it and check for yourself?
i have seen them crack, BTW. that's not to say that they aren't misdiagnosing it

the richest ones are not those who have the most, but those who need the least
