Please identify this fuel line.

Attaches to the fuel outlets. Lower and to the rear of the right side of the housing if I am not mistaken.


What on earth is this line called? I believe mine is cracked or leaking. Drains off of the V in this line.











Anyone ever see it develop a leak enough to fill the rear depression in the valley and out the drain hole? It is just pouring out and truck kerplunks, no knocking, just kerplunking and fuel streaming of the drain hole and out the drip pan below.

You guys are a great help.

And I don't post a question without searching high and low first, out of respect. I cannot find this part online anywhere, spelled anyway, called anything.

Just for a joke I searched "Chickens#$t fuel line" and got nowhere with google.

take that picture to the ford house and ask them for the fuel line from the bowl to the pass fuel rail. They attach with vibralock connectors. Its like a little rubber washer thing that wraps around the hard line. If I remember right the hard line has a flared end also. Its been awhile.

How tight do they need to be and is there anything else I need to do before starting her?

The stock fuel system is dead headed so once the fuel leaves the filter it has no place to go other then out the injector. 2 choices, crank and crank till it fires or (the better way I think) turn on the key and let the fuel pump go and crack the fitting till fuel comes out. then snug it up and crank and crank till it goes. I just cranked mine down till they felt snug and did not leak. not too tight because of the oring thing in there will seal it.

Just put her all back together, now runs horribly. Won't stay running at first, then runs horribly with a miss once she gets going.

Any ideas. No leaks by the way!!!!!!!

Just don't want to do any damage. Is she just thirsty for fuel? Will this clear up if I let her run awhile and will I do any damage doing so?
