I did mine not to long ago. It is not to hard of a job if you have some mechanical ability. Took me about 2 hours. Bring it down to Texas and I will give you a hand!!!!

Go to dieselsite and they have some good directions that you can download and really help you out.

Absolutely

Broke the part on the top driver side right here. My brother over tightened it and it snapped. So if we can find the part hes gotta cut the fuel line and reflare it. Im sure international can get it but they arent open till tuesday

Yea the Ford dealers here dont usually stock 7.3 parts. Dont need them much. Did it come just the fitting or with the nut and everything? Otherwise I gotta go the menards too...

it just comes with the cap. i got lucky and got the broken end out of the fuel line with a flat head and some luck. what when you remove the cap off the fuel filter, there is a spring in there. diesel site sell an upgrade spring that is supposed to raise the fuel pressure. i did it on mine, but i still have another issue with low power. i was hoping it was a weak spring, but for $20, i really wasnt worried about it.
