here’s the video
I’ll give it a shot.
Thanks so much.
I did buy the whole kit though. I needed this truck on the road two weeks ago. I’ve got a small lawn care company in addition to my day job and I’ve made commitments to clients and the grass is just a few days from being ready to mow. Twenty some odd customers would not be happy.
Yes these are notorious for that if you don't under coat them every year. The line at the rear goes from the 7th injector to a t the to the 8th injector to the fuel rail. You will most likely have to remove the glow plug control module,fuel line brackets and the glow plug and injector harness from that location. I wouldn't force anything into the injector. That is asking for trouble. There's no need to flush the lines out if the new kit came with new ones which it should have. Also the first and last injector have the elbow fittings not the t fittings. This is definitely not a fun project which is why you only want to do it once. Oem or metal fittings are the only ones I would go with. The dorman brand from any parts store will fail in short order as I have seen many many times. Hope you get it all squared away!I think what I’m going to try is a large syringe. I’ll attach a small hose to it and force diesel down the return hole flushing any debris from the fittings onto my garage floor. I mean what’s a little more diesel at this point right? 😂
I’ll then install the new lines.
I am struggling to remove the line that goes along the firewall. Just doesn’t want to budge. Can’t even see where it goes.
Been thinking about the issues I’ve had with this truck over the last 16 years and I’d bet 90% of the issues were related to corrosion. I mean it’s crazy. Brake lines rotting out and now the fuel lines doing the same.
The one on the left you squeeze the tabs and pull. The other one there is a slide on the right side that you pull out to release the plug. Look up LBZ glow plug module release and you'll get pics. Then take the bracket off. It's 4 12mm head bolts. That should give you access to the fuel rail.So I think I’ve got the injectors free of the plastic fittings that broke off when I removed them. Now I’m trying to figure out how to remove the return line that goes into the manifold. Ironworker15 I believe you mentioned glowplug module how do they release? Don’t want to break them.
