fuel line leak!

Hi,

I thought my drain valve o-rings had gone again even though I replaced them with Vitron units. I climbed under the truck and saw that it looked like the leak was at the union between the stainless looking flex line and the bent steel lines running into the fuel filter bowl. Actually it looked like the steel lines were rusted but I did not want to disturb them until I had the parts on hand.

Is there a good online image of that area or does anyone know the part #s ?

Thanks!!

Need advice on getting new lines in!

Hi - It was the stainless steel fuel lines (coming out of the fuel filter bowl) that were eroded - you would think that they would not rust but they did.

Any how I picked up new ones, removed the old ones but cannot snake the new ones in. I pulled the old ones out with a bit of force. I have removed the bracket for the PS pump. Do I have to tear the front of the engine off to put these lines in? Help!!

They should route in there but it may take some work and coming in from a different direction.
