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

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
