Fuel Line

Sounds like your describing the 2 metal fuel lines that run down the front of the engine on the driver side. May be a leak at the return line O-ring up by the fuel pressure regulator. Sometimes fuel will run down from there making the steel line wet.

Yeah the drain line is on the pass side not the drivers. Either way it is a fuel line and needs to be fixed.

Does anyone know of a place online to buy those fuel lines?
Mine are shot and the stealership wants 900 to fix it.
Says I need the new hard lines and new flex lines.
I can tell the hard lines are rotted out just by the rust at the top of them by the fuel bowl. I don't know about the rest of the system because i've yet to put it on a lift myself.

Anyone change those out themselves?
Anyone know anyplace to get replacement lines on the cheap?
Thanks in advance!

I'll be your huckleberry, Salvage yard, Your Premiere Source for Ford Truck Parts and Accessories or buy a tubing bender and some fittings and make them up yourself. Not a lot of other choices.

Thanks,
I checked pss.com but I can't seem to find the steel or flex lines (or any fuel lines) for that matter through the parts look-up. I'll send them an email to see if they can get the OEM parts. Otherwise, i'm bending them myself i guess.
