Fuel line to head

My 16 year old daughter pulled up into the drive way this morning after taking the wife to work. We have a 2000 Excursion. There was fuel running every where and this afternoon I dug into it. I found the steel line from the front drivers side to the back of the head if worn to the point of breaking. the problem that Im having is I cant get my big *** hands back underneath the fire wall and over the engine. Does any one have words of wisdom to share with me? HELP PLEASE!

The easiest way to get to the passenger's side fuel line is to remove the spider off of the turbo outlet. It opens up quite a bit of room and you can easily get a wrench on the rear fitting. This is also an excellent time to clean out the CAC boots on the intake. Use warm water and Simple green.

Well I figured out a way to lay across the front. Removed the intercooller pipe on that side. Then I wedged my left hand in beside the left side and used a 9/16th wrench at a great angle to remove the nut. Installing was a breeze after trying to get it off.


$50.73 for that little 2 foot piece of steel tubing.

Normally, your fuel line dead ends into the back of the head. The regulated return fixes that and also gives you adjustability with the regulator. #8 cylinder can starve of fuel and also air/trash is forced through the injector instead of circulating. Much better design IMO.
