looked under my truck last week and found the 2 fuel lines on the drivers side of the frame rail are leaking right after the quick connect coupling..traced the 2 lines up the front of the motor and found that one goes into the regulator on the fuel bowl and the other goes into the lift pump. The line is starting to rot through which is why it is leaking so it needs to be replaced...is this hard to do? I saw that it went behind all the engine pulleys and looks like it could be a pain..anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!

It is a pain but not impossible. The worst part is fishing everything back up through the front of the motor. It's not an impossible job though. Best of luck to ya!

if your plaining on an electric fuel system down the line, just run 3/8 push lock and get rid of the factory stuff that way you wont have to mess with pulling all the acc stuff off the drivers dide to fish the hard lines in.

Use pushlock hose and route the hoses out through the back of the engine, loop over the brake booster and drop them down to the frame. Use large nylon wire ties to fasten them to the frame wiring bundle. Clamp the hoses to the tubing at a convenient point forward of the axle. About the easiest way to do it.

There's a bolt holding the fuel line just above the engine ground wire on the driver side of the engine.

Fishing the old lines out and installing the new lines is a lot easier with the A/C compressor/power steering moutning bracket out of the way. You can unbolt the A/C Compressor and tie it up out of the way and then remove the bolts for the bracket to move it out of the way. There's no need to remove the vacuum pump or power steering pump.

The lines also go behind the oil cooler, it is easier if you remove the cooler.
