I am going to attempt installing the new one tonight after work..



Are the fuel lines easy to get on ? any tricks to get them on easier ? That is the only part I am worried about.


Do they usually go on easy ?

Going on, yes.
Coming off,...they can bond to the metal, but a pick inserted and worked around the tube can break the bond and off they come.

That's good to hear. I already have the fuel lines off, they weren't too bad, I used a small flathead first to loosen them up, took a little work..

I wish I would of caught your post earlier. The filter head orings are prone to leak air after several years of service, so the good thing is that you replaced the fuel filter head for not just your recent issue. But I would of strongly suggested that you replace the 2 fuel hoses that connect to the filter head because of age . They get soft and collapse because the fuel is being sucked to the fuel pump(CP3). There is some simple preventative maintenance that you can do to help your LBZ run for many years to come. There is a lot of good suggestion in the maintenance section of this forum.

Thanks !

I bought the truck from a friend from work who was OCD on preventative maintenance. He replaced the starter / alternator just because they were 5 years old. brake lines because he read on the forum they rust ..

My truck has 275,000 miles, original injectors, when we checked 2 years ago the balance rates were good as new. .

I have been using a little bit of the amsoil injector cleaner every once in a while as well, not sure if that helps ..
