Fuel pressure port broke off of fuel bowl/housing!
So I installed a set of gauges in my 2002 7.3 and when I snugged down the fuel pressure sending unit in the bung next to drain on the fuel filter house/bowl, it broke clean off.
I couldn't believe it. When I removed the broken part from my adapter it just fell apart. I didn't even torque down on it, I snugged it down and this happened. So now I either have to find a fix or buy a new fuel bowl/housing for $500. I noticed that there are still plenty of threads left in the port but one of the fuel lines that screw into the bottom of the bowl is interfering. What if I backed the fuel line out a little so that it's out of the way of the port threads and drilled a hole in my adapter that would line up wit the fuel line so the fuel could go through? Kind of like a banjo bolt. I don't know what to do
I know it's a shot in the dark but does anyone have a fuel filter bowl/housing laying around that they would want to sell?
