Getting the Wheeling Fever
I have 1986 pick up. Its leaking fuel at the gas tank on one of the fuel lines off the fuel pick up.
Is there a replace? Does or did anyone fix a line of a fuel pick up? I cant spice on to it because its leaking too close to the pick up. please help. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

Body Damage is Cool
This is a real common problem on the 80's trucks.
Unfortunately the usual fix is a new p/u assy, $175-200 at the dealer only.

same thing happened to my truck. tightened the hose clamps that connect it to the tank w/ a screwdriver and was good to go. hasn't leaked since!

also, if that doesn't work try taking the tubing off, cleaning it then reinstalling it. maybe a little sealant as a last resort, but i definitely wouldn't spend $200 at the dealer for a new part.

My 85 4runner just did the same thing,I get wholesale so it's about $105.00.If it was Carbed I would look into splicing it but mine is EFI.It will shoot fuel 2 feet because of the pressure it's under.Fix it right and spend the money at the dealer,a fire in the woods would suck to save a little money.

Scrounge if you're short on cash, but yeah, make sure it's a good fix, or you'll be out there with marshmallows and a stick.


Is that thing EFI or carbie? Make sure you get the right parts. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/shame.gif" alt="" />
