Removing fuel bowl

I am going to be pulling my fuel bowl this weekend to replace some old O-Rings.

I bought my O-Ring kit from dieselorings.com.

Does anyone have a link to a write up, so I can prep myself on the removal process?


Also, I didn't order new hoses for the fuel bowl when I bought the O-Ring kit. Does anyone have part numbers from international, ford, napa, or advance auto so I can have them for this weekend?

Thanks for any and all help.

Re: Removing fuel bowl

It is quite simple on a F-series .... First you need to take off the intake "y" for access to the bowl bolts ( 2 ) then you disconnect the harness which also connects to the IPR so be carefull. Then you loosen the front drain hose ( if you have one) and the clamps on the PUMP side only. Disconnect the 2 return lines from the heads at the FPR before you remove you undo the mounting bolts . Undo the 2 filterbowl mounting bolts and pull it off gently. Make sure you DRAIN the filterbowl BEFORE you remove it.
I took my bowl with me to a o-ring shop partially dissassembled and he matched them up for me... As far as the hoses go I bought them at a hose place . You need 1 ft each of 3/8 and 5/16 300 psi fuel injection hose ...also buy the good clamps ( also for fuel injection). You then take off the little hoses and cut new ones to match from your 1 ft pieces of each. On reassembly attach all hoses to the filterbowl first and tighten them since you will not be able to tighten them after you install the bowl.. re-attach the return lines at the FPR and do not overtighten them since they are compression type...
Hope this helps...

Re: Removing fuel bowl

I got the fuel bowl removed, what a nasty mess that was with all the fuel that was leaked out.

Its a good thing I went ahead and ordered the new hoses as the old ones were old and starting to crack up.


My only question is, that when I pulled the fuel bowl I noticed on one of the wires the little weather protector that keeps the moisture out has start to desinigrate, I guess from the fuel. I am thinking that the wire is for the fuel bowl heater. Where can I get a new wire harness at?

Re: Removing fuel bowl

imo you dont need the fuel bowl heater. i live in northern indiana and never had a problem with mine. not to say that some day i wont hook it up again but just my 2 cents. also I have read a number of times that they tend to short out and not work anyways

Re: Removing fuel bowl

My heater element is broke. How do I remove it and replace it?

Re: Removing fuel bowl

You need to remove the Stand pipe .... I used a basin wrench but you a can use a crow foot socket /wrench ...remember it is reverse thread and is plastic AND costs $ 80 bucks so be very carefull

Re: Removing fuel bowl




Fuel bowl has been removed, and all orings and hoses replaced.

I re-installed it, and no leaks!

Thanks for all your help blageurt.
