Fuel Leak

I have a 96 OBS F250 with fuel leaking in the engine valley. I'm not sure where it's coming from, however, after reading other posts here, I'm thinking of tearing into it. Can anyone supply pictures or how to on pulling the fuel filter and replacing hoses and fuel pump??
Thank You

Re: Fuel Leak

Well I dont have any pic's but I just came in from the from tearing mine down. And like you I'm still not sure where its coming from. I am hoping to get a seal kit if they make them and replace all the seals. Also I amd going to replace all the rubber hoses. I tried to find a diagarm of all that too before I tore down but I didn't have any luck. What I can tell you is there is two bolts 13mm. that hold the house in and they are tight. Then losin up all the rubber hoses and the return. There are two high pressure lines 9/16 wrench. losin them. Then unplug the harness (watch the plastic clips they fragile i broke mine.) With all that lose you should be able to wiggle it out of there. Need somemore help let me know.

Re: Fuel Leak

I located my leak by climbing up there with the engine running (I placed a piece of wood across from the radiator support to the alternator, to serve as a "guard" from the fan). I used a very bright flashlight and a small inspection mirror, and worked my way around the sides until I could see the leak. It helped to remove the "snap-on" heat shield from above the fuel pump. Using the mirror also helped me see where everything was which needed to be disconnected.

Re: Fuel Leak

Thanks ya'll......yeah, it seems like it is a needle in the valley...so to speak. Does Napa sell new fuel pumps and hoses?
Thanks again!!

Re: Fuel Leak

I have heard that NAPA carries the fuel pump under industry standard #61067. For hoses you just need "fuel injection" hose which meets SAE J30R9 specs (it will be printed on the side). Possible leak sites include the fuel filter clogged sensor (should be on the FPR on a 1996), the seal between the FPR and the fuel bowl (-015 O-ring), the fuel drain valve (seals with two -202 O-rings), the fuel hoses, and the fuel pump.
