Fuel Tank 92 GMC Diesel

6 posts in this topic

I need to replace the fuel line that goes from the tank to the fuel pump. Is there anything I should be concerned about before dropping the tank? It looks like I should disconnect the fuel filler line but is there anything else. I just need to drop it far enough to disconnect the old line and reconnect the new one. Thanks. By the way the local dealer wanted $125 for the fuel line. I found it on line for $46 plus shipping.

Why did you have to do it ?

I don't think there should be a problem with it, did you buy a rubber line or a steel line ?

I just added a new fuel pump to my Dodge and I went from right next to tank to filter with 3/8" marine fuel hose, it's twice as thick as standard hose.

It's a rubber and steel line combination. You did give me a thought though. Would it be possible to cut the rubber line coming from the tank, insert the steel line from the new line put a hose clamp on it and save myself from having to drop the tank. Humm.

On a diesel yes it's possible, your lift pump does not have high pressure like a gasser, use good quality stainless steel.

I owe you big time. I got her running without dropping the tank. I hope to see you in the spring if I'm around. I'll bring the donuts. Thanks, gunflint

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
