changed out fuelpump( calif. emissions) pulsation dampner, fuel lines from pump to head, now I have a leak on fitting on left side fitting fuel inlet to head. Are these fittings available thru Ford.... do they have the ck valve in the fitting??? is this part serviceable and having a long cranking to start motor.. must have low PSI in head any Ideas or fixes

On the fuel line side, that nut comes off and has a rubber washer inside.

If you are talking about the hard lines that go into the head from the lift pump, there are two small rubber washers Can be found here , sorry dont have ford number

Is the leak at the threads on the fitting into the head or where the fuel line joins the fitting? As 79jasper mentions, there is a sleeve at the fuel line-to-fitting joint. As far as I know there are no check valves in the head fittings. Cheers!

So its not sleeves in the lines in back of head? or was it the return hose? if you replaced the hard lines and didn't replace the sleeves I would order those two because more then likely that could be it.

Iirc, I tightened mine. I'm pretty sure it's a tapered thread.
