Question fuel tube on left side...

Hello everyone. I'm running into some issues with my 1989 f150 5.0L...okay...ALOT of issues...seems that the guy that sold it too me lied about everything...last time that I go to buy a vehicle without a compression tester!! ANYWAY, I digress...the fuel tubes on the drivers side frame rail, run about two inches away from my exhaust manifold. The heat melted throught the insulated covering and then the tube on the line running from my tankswitch valve to the left fuel rail. I finally found the part I needed to repair it (more tubing with brass barbs) but, what is the permanent fix? I have no heat shield there (is it missing or just never existed?). Any help with this issue is appreciated as I am not a huge fan of vehicles burning to the ground...
Thanks,
Jeff

Seems odd. I thought they were steel or stainless reinforced flex line.
I need to look on my truck, but I thought it went up frame, then jumped over exhaust at the back and hard line up over the bellhousing. Not much plastic.
Any way to take a pic and post it. You'll probably need photobucket where you're not up to 25 posts yet.

I will take a pic in the next couple days and post it, but I'm not sure what a photobucket is?
Thank you,
Jeff

Photobucket is a website that you can post pictures to. Then you can use the link to that pic, to post a picture on this site.
I can post a pic directly to the site. But you may not being that you have less posts.
