2000 F-350 7.3L Diesel Fuel Pump Location?

Can someone tell me where the fuel pump is located on a 2000 F-350 7.3L Diesel? Also, how complex is replacing this?

Thanks.

The electric priming pump is attached to the rail under the cabin. Easy to spot.

Are the "priming pump" and the main fuel pump one in the same? Dealer wants almost $1000 to replace, saw the electric pump online for $150. Trying to figure out if I want to take on the repair. Thanks.

Those engines also have HPOP what pumps high pressure oil to injectors. Those are expensive.
Go to 7.3l section for more details. Start with checking what dealers estimate says.
Charging $1000 for replacing $150 part would be unusual, but not uncommon.

The fuel pump is located on the frame rail under the driver seat. You need a fuel line disconnect tool to remove the lines, the same way you do on a gasoline fuel filter. Then there are 2 small nuts holding 2 wires on the pump. It's not hard to change, you just end up with diesel fuel on you.

Are you sure they are quoting you that much money for just changing the fuel pump? If it's the HPOP (high pressure oil pump) that might be different. Still way overpriced for what you can do it yourself for, but at least different.

And yes, there is only one pump on this engine that pumps fuel from the tank to the motor and it can be purchased for $150 or less at many parts stores.

It's a Ford dealer, they want $550 for the fuel pump and $75 for the fuel filter. Labor is $125 diagnostic and another $150 to install. I bought all and an airf ilter online for $170. Going to give replacement a shot, can't be worse than the 99' Saab 9-5 that I replaced the fuel pump in last weekend. Not a good run for me and fuel pumps... Any pointers are appreciated. Thanks.

it is easy , it is on the rail take lines off wire off put the new one on the let the pump run with the key of 30 sec then key off then on 30 sec do that 5 time and you should be good. that will prime the pump and lines.

I had to purchase the plastic fuel disconnect tool and cut the two halves apart because my metal disconnect tool couldn't fit. This was about 3 years ago for me. (2001 F-250 Crew cab) other than that it was fairly simple and straight forward.
This is a good picture of what you will be looking for.

Good luck.

FYI - The fitting on the rear of pump inlet is not the same as the front. It is a differet type of quick connect.

This works perfect for the quick-connect at outlet side of pump.
