Talking Fuel Pulse Dampener/Accumulator Replacement

Hey Guys,
This is just a little thanks for all the useful hints I've gotten on the forum. I recently noticed that the Pulse Dampener/Accumulator (Ford P/N: F6TZ-9N163-AA or Bosch P/N: 9 401 240 169) on my '96 F250 7.3 PS was leaking diesel. Actually leaking is a huge understatement... there was a 1/4" wide spray of diesel pulsing out like a severed artery!

Anyway, everything I read talked about removing the turbo (and the associated woes) which I really, REALLY did not want to get into that.

So it may have been the long way around but I was finally able to fabricate a tool that allowed me to remove the accumulator without the taking off the turbo.

I've pasted some pix to help anyone interested in making their own - you'll probably need at least two (at different angles) in order to account for the limited available turning radius. Maybe it's just me but I'd rather make something new in my garage than fight rusted on bolts and nuts while cramped under the hood.

Hope it helps...

Thank Tylus

Determined or hard headed? Probably more the latter! I just saw a bunch of threads talking about hard to get to bolts, broken studs, etc... Keeping my fingers crossed though as it appears there's now a small leak coming from the banjo bolt! Hopefully, I'll be able to snug it up and be off and truckin'.

Thanks for the welcome!

I know this post is from way back but do you remember what size the wrench was? It looks like 1".

A crow's foot with an extension wouldn't fit? Your tool reminds me of that.

Hey guys, iIm here with a related question of sorts. If I were to want to tighten my banjo bolt would I have to remove this accumulator? On other FTE blogs this doesnít seem to be a very common addition, and I havenít found much help. Most guys put their combo wrenches through the front webbing of the turbo pedestal, but it isnít possible on these California models obviously. Anyways, if you guys have any ideas I would certainly appreciate it. Thanks
