Sitting in a hotel and the fuel lift pump went out on my 97 today. DONT have tools with me so I need to know what tools are needed to remove it with the turbo on the truck! Also need to know if any special o-rings or gaskets are needed.

Boy, you are gonna need all kinds of misc wrenches, ratchets and extensions. Definately need a 1 1/4 wrench to get the banjo bolt off the back of the pump. Where are you currently at? Perhaps there is someone from here nearby with needed tools. bump

Im in San Antonio Tx and I know I need the 1 1/4 box end but need to know socket sizes for the bolts that hold the lift pump and the size for the crank for when I need to turn the crank.

Its leaking and surging really bad. If you hold the petal at 60mph it all of a sudden dumps fuel hard and jumps then stops. Also the turning the crank is just a precaution as I have heard of them breaking off if you dont turn the crank to pop it up.

The one that I did, I didn't turn the crank. I just tightened the bolts one turn on each of them till the thing was snugged down. The tappet will push up the return spring slowly.

Are you sure that the fuel lines between the filter bowl and the pump are not broken? I have never seen one that was bad enough to not work. The one that I have done was just leaking badly into the engine valley. When I got it apart, I wasn't totally sure the pump was even bad, since the three lines disintegrated in my hands when I tried to remove them. I replaced the pump anyway, since I was already there, and I was not going to pull the turbo off again if I had to do the pump also.

I don't know if it can be done without pulling the turbo. Then again, I was doing a van, and the only way to get to the pump was to go through the back. The turbo *had* to come off. On a pickup truck, you might be able to just remove the intake piping.

Yes, it is very possible to do it without taking the turbo off(on a truck). I would also check all the fuel lines in the valley, and also check the orings behind the drain valve on the fuel bowl.

Drain valve O-rings have been replaced and fuel lines and fpr o=rings so it leave the pump plus we have pined down it is the issue to a couple problems. Also like you said it can be done without removing the turbo UNLESS its a Cali truck and or a E-Series!

Now just to clarify so NO ONE gets confused I just need to know what size sockets to buy as I dont need to have another 200+ tool set layin around.
