1997 7.3 psd fuel pump leaking?

Truck was put in the local shop about a month ago for stalling out and was diagnosed with a bad cps and a leaky fuel pump. Cps has been changed and truck is running good except for the leaking fuel pump. Went to begin the removal process and couldnt see any fuel in the valley, but its definately on the ground. My question is how can i be sure the pump is the faulty equip and any tips on the job is always helpful. This is my first diesel and im a little concerned about tearin into it, been a gasser mech for years

fuel

If you lay ontop very carefully with the motor running you can use a mirror or if its bad enough on the pass side you will see the weep hole weeping fuel out. That is the most common. Other places to look are the fuel lines to the heads. The banjo bolt can be removed with a box end wrench with the turbo still on. You can actually get it out after you break it loose by using a 1/4 air wratchet and a swivel.

Oh and one more thing. Once you get the banjo, 2 bolts, and fuel lines be very careful to lift straight up on it.

ok,, banjo bolt is just about out (what a pain ), another quick question. Should i loosen the fuel filter housing (black threaded cap on top). I cant see another way to get the bottom line off. Also no new bottom line is avail and i am told it is a return line and i can just use regular fuel line is that tru?

Charge your batteries up and keep cranking Don't smoke your starter though I would crank 10-20 seconds at a time and let the starter cool down for a few minutes each time.
