I got a 1995 7.3 and my fuel line from the bowl to the left head broke. How do I get the fuel line off the driver side head? Can I do it without taking the a/c off?

The A/C I think is two bolts in the front. Just undo the bolts and take the belt off but leave the hoses alone. You can move the compressor to the side and not affect the system.

Sorry to dig up an old thread but I have searched to no evail, anyway this same hose busted(I should say blew its self out is more like it) on my truck yesterday after switching my trans range sensor and getting ready for a test drive.

I had it all torn apart and thought about replacing them but I didn't and now ive bought that lesson and I am going to replace both lines, trouble is I cant find them. Yall have a good site to get them from cheaper than the stealership.

Only reason I wouldn't build them is because they are hydrolic line type hoses not just normal hose they have more pressure under them.....but to each there own.

Now you could take old ones to a place that make hydrolic lines and see what they would charge to make them

It cost me $40 to replace both hoses with hydraulic hose. Any competent hose shop can make them while you wait. FWIW, if you're replacing one, replace them both.

I got a guy who makes me lines across the country.......he's good and CHEAP! Local guy wanted $60 for a tractor hose and my guy was less than half delivered!

Looks like they are straight 1/2" JIC female on both end and one being 10" & 13 1/2" overall.

I'm going to take care of the CCV too while I'm in there. Both O-rings were broken. :mad:

Wonder if I should replace the fuel pump too? Doesn't look like it was ever changed and its at 173k miles. :dunno:

the fuel line can be regular fuel line they only see 100 ish PSI. i spend the extra money for the reusable fittings. i think i paid about $40 with tax for both. the HPOP lines need to be hydraulic lines it can see 3500 PSI. the passenger side line can be done fairly easily. the driver side is easy if you pull the bracket off 4 11/16 bolts
