Re: Busted in Barstow need fuel pressure gauge

86Scotty: Does removal of the frame rail fuel filter require use of an AC disconnect tool (good ones at Harbor Freight for cheap) like it does to remove the frame rail fuel filter on my Bronco and like it does to remove the frame rail fuel pump on my 7.3L PSD van?

You do need the little disconnect tool to remove the fuel filter, and the fuel lines off the tank too. Dropping the tank isn't too bad if you have a floor jack and the tank isn't too full. Not that I could have done it on the side of the road though....

Re: Busted in Barstow need fuel pressure gauge

Oops, yes as Arctictraveller said you do need that. It is a quick job with and only with that! And I have done it on the side of the road, and once in the road (luckily it was a seldom traveled gravel road). It's a long story, but here's the short version. My Quigley modified tank was rusty as was my rear transferflow. I had other issues with the engine (vaccuum related) soon after I bought it and went through a time where I thought hesitation and other troubles were clogged fuel filters, so I kept changing them thinking that was the problem. I've gotten pretty quick at it. The fix for me was to replace what I could of the fuel tank venting system and don't overfill the tank.

Here's the set I got which has come in very handy so far on several van repairs. They are plastic but are holding up well.
