hey guys need some info. found two rubber lines on the top of the block leaking fuel a little. my repair book shows this to be the fuel supply pump and shows (barely) the two rubber lines coming off of it. but it does not give me any info as to where these lines go. i am going to try replacing these today but am curious about something first. can i just unbolt fuel filter bowl and move it out of the way to get to these two lines? or do i have to unbolt and move the turbo like the book suggests? :confused:

As the picture shows, just remove the Ypipe. You should be able to just unbolt the fuel bowl to give you some wiggle room without having to actually remove the bowl. Also, go to Napa and get a can of silicon spray and spray the inside the hose on the ends it will help them slide on a lot better.

You'd probably be better off just ditching the whole fuel bowl system and going with an electric set up!

I did my electric fuel for less than 300. Just about every DIY e-fuel reported here has been less than $500.

I plan on replacing all of those hoses when I get around to putting my IC kit on. Will I have to drain the bowl or will it be alright to just leave it alone?

Drain the bowl. Replace the filter while your at it.

Well when it removes the problem of that pos mechanical fuel pump and pressures dropping down to 0psi and possibly causing injector problems I'd say it makes perfect sense.
