help with 2 Excursion problems

I have a 2002 Excursion 7.3 PSD that Iím having 2 issues with. Currently I have a fuel leak that falls to rear of the motor over transmission. From the top side there is no fuel in the valley but I canít find the leak. Is there some connection to look for under or to the rear of the turbo? Secondly the 4x4 hubs won't move from the auto to the lock position. Is this just a matter of being more forceful or is there something else going on. 4x4 won't engage and I do believe that I have a vacuum problem.

Hubs are most likely seized and the fuel leak is probably the line that goes to the back of the rh head. The clamp usually rubs a hole in it causing the leak and the fuel falls down the back of the valley.

Here is a pic I found that shows the clamp that causes the line to leak



I looked around and here is a link to a replacement: Passenger Side Fuel Line - Riffraff Diesel Performance

Best thing to do to prevent it happening again is to wrap a piece of rubber fuel line around the hard line where it passes through the clamp.

And yeah, you need new hubs. If you suspect a vacuum issue as well, it might be a good time to just make the switch to Warn manual hubs.

Thanks for that info, i'll take a look today to see if that it is it. I take it that Warn hubs are good replacement hubs. I'm not to that up on this stuff. What a good tuner/programmer for the 7.3. I'd like to wake it up a bit.

Does that line run under the turbo mount?

As you can see in the picture, that fuel line is routed under the pedestal.

Yes, that is the fuel line in question. The other hard line you see in the picture that runs in front of the turbo pedestal is a hard HPX line.

where the fuel line connects to the head, can leak there too. The parker sleeves ware out. Get a "cabinet" kit from riffraff and "seal" everything up top.

check the vacuum lines at the hubs. Buddys' were rotted away. If you do go the hub route, i suggest SuperWinch
