the fuel is leaking from the elbow on top of the fuel pump is there any way that can be fixed without buying a new fuel pump assembly

If its leaking you might as well go ahead and buy a new one man.Would suck if you were on the side of the road tryin to fix your fuel pump,like I was last week...

you can band-aid it with a fuel tank repair kit or with a rubber sleeve clamped over the bend, but in the end, thats all it is - a band-aid.
replace it and save yourself some trouble and some walking.

lol... yeah it probably will end ugly. im only doing it so the truck can pass a safety. As of right now ive replaced both front fenders all tie rods ball joints i have the box off to replace the fuel lines, hanger bearing and reweld the rear frame support (cross member) i just dont have the coin right now to replace that unit but once its safetied and on the road and have the money available i will for sure change it. actually have you guys ever changed the hanger bearing before i need a how to. i bought the haynes repair manual but it is a POS.

is there enough room on the elbow to slip a piece of fuel line over it? you can then clamp both end. thats the way i would temp-fix it if it was mine.

I still say dig deep into those pockets of yours and buy a new fuel pump,atleast look up aftermarket ones and consider what you will need to spend.Lol,i wonder if something like a walbro would even work on this application?I got my walbro fuel pump for $150...

Yeah but would a walbro work on his vehicle?I guess I dont see why not..I got my walbro fuel pump about 4 years ago when I turboed my KA,used it in all of my 240s and its still running strong.Came with a lifetime warranty too,if it ever screws up they just replace it. Asleep ,man I need a body kit.Nothin fancy man,just a cheap body kit,im talkin like $300.Does steve got the hookup?Gotta post a thread on it..looking to get my car sprayed soon.
