    Hate to bother you but I bought a 2005 f250 one owner low miles and I have been searching for info on relocating the front leaf spring hanger. All the information i have seen so far does not have a picture or discussion about the parking brake cable. Is there an issue when relocating it?. I see that the PMF hangers are on sale but $299 is still expensive. the pmf spring package is 300 bucks cheaper than Carli. My truck rides like a beast and I would dearly love to smooth it out. truck has bilstein front coils but I am going to swap those out with Carli commuter springs...

    any help or pictures would be greatly appreciated

    Hello

    Have been told you have a all day coolant flush for the 6.0 or maybe just a general one but I want to do this very good just one time. You know make the bg mess just once then it is done until next time. Let me know just were I can find it or if not to much trouble send it to me. Thank you Tracey Bort

    Hey, no I haven't as of yet. My truck is in pieces being completely restored. Probably by next winter it will be done. I will let you know the results. That is unless I lose my patience with trying to source parts and just buy a new truck LOL. It would actually be cheaper haha.

    Yes cut off BOTH tubes!

    If you do not cut off fill line as soon as the fuel reaches that tube no more air can exit at the spout.
    CHOP IT...........ALL OF IT AS HIGH AS POSSIBLE.

    No worries brother I will answer anything I have first hand knowledge on. May not be as soon as I would like. Hope it’s not too late. Keep a count of fuel you pour in and then after top off.
    Think you will be pleasantly pleased. Should be around 37 gallons.

    Sorry to bother you again but some people I see cut just the vent tube and some people cut the vent AND fill tube. You cut both correct? I just wanna make sure I get as good of a result as you did. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

    There are two larger pipes that extend inside the fuel tank. The vent pipes extend down into the tank and dictate how high the fuel can get by no longer allowing the air to escape and be replaced by fuel.

    The smaller lines are for the sealed vented fuel system that returns gasses back to the tank from pressure regulating of the fuel originally headed to the injectors. The small lines just need to be in good order and not able to leak.

    Purpose of original design: Ford along with other manufacturers build their fuel tanks for use with both gasoline and diesel fuels. Gasoline is a fuel thatís been refined much further than diesel and is a much lighter petroleum. This also gives gasoline a much higher evaporation rate as well as higher expansion rate then diesel. So the fuel tanks are made with 20-25% area for the thermal expansion that occurs in gasoline
