fuel line repaired
well yesterday i changed some of the hard fuel lines out on my truck
the passenger side one wasnt too bad. i cut off the old line right at the fitting and used a ratchet to take it off. wayyyy easier.
instead of using a shorty wrench i reached under the pedestal (long and skinny arms) and tightened the new line down using a regular size crescent. then the fitting on the fuel bowl was a piece of cake.
now the drivers side fuel line is another story.
it runs under the fuel bowl and hpop and is a pain in the *&% to get out.
i ended up having to loosen the power steering bracket, remove the alternator to even get to the fitting on the head. crows foot wouldnt work for me.
took me a while to get it out too, ended up bending it too get it out.
the new one was a challenge to get in too. seems like every wire is in the way lol
but with a little bit of sweat (and blood) finally got the sucker in their.
so if anyone is planning on replacing the drivers side line it is not fun and i hope this helps.
