i just installed this kit today,and its loads better than those two kits i got from pensacola.
i noticed they included real fuel hose with this one! not that braided type stuff that kept leaking on me.
the same hose i ran from and too my fuel tanks.
diesel rated goodyear SAE 30R7. Fuel Line/PCV/Emission Control Hose SAE 30R7 | GoodyearŽ Engineered Products
i was pleased to see that.
too bad it didn't included Viton o-rings or it would be perfect.i tossed the standard ones and went with Viton again as my last Vitons were the only part that didn't leak.
anyway.looks like a decent affordable kit.
these are sold at oreilly's too.make sure to get the correct kit.year specific for your truck.
^ still leak free.i did replace it again due to installing a set of new g code injectors.i used the same kit,and just as issue free as the first one.
This thread is perfect for those like me who are going to do their first fuel return line swap. A lot of those old links don't work anymore, but the amazon ones for the Delphi still work. Just ordered it and some viton o-rings so I can quit leaking fuel. Not sure if I should drive it like this though. I reckon that a return line leak isn't life-threatening, right? Diesel running over the top of the engine and down by the flywheel shouldn't cause any fires or anything, right? Diesel being not as volatile as gas?
Here's a tip from a novice mechanic: when you put the new O rings on the injectors, put the top one on first, the bottom one will go over it to where it has to be. I've had my return lines on now for almost ten years. I keep thinking I should replace them now, but I don't want to mess with a good thing! When you work under the hood be careful not to bump any of the components.
I just did them and I discovered that trick too. It would be really hard to try and get that o-ring all the way down. Much easier to do the top one first! Now, on to the freakin' fuel filter leak that just showed up! Dadgummit! Hopefully its just an oring and I don't have to plug it or buy the rip off new one. $145 for a small metal plate mated to a plastic receptacle? There has to be a cheaper way to sell those.
Are you talking about fhe fuel heater on top of the filter head leaking? The heater is worthless. A lot of us have removed it and replaced it with a 1/4"npt plug. You need to remove the heater and tap the hole. You can also just replace the o rings.
Noticed this to be the most recent post regarding replacing Return lines with a Dipaco Kit. They are very difficult to find. I have 2 complete unopened Kits I will sell for $35. each postage paid. Contact me for arrangements to purchase.
