Vanilla, you must have stretchable arms like Gumby. I tried pulling the LF - couldn't reach anything from the fenderwell area. I already had the starter out for replacement, so that (and removing the fuel filter) made it slightly easier.
I deceided to do both lines, and it has been one of the more aggravating tasks I've encountered. Took forever to remove the return-line clamp under the intake box. Had to take my Dremel and a cutting disk to the Oetiker clamp on one end of supply line. The bleep(s) that came up with these fuel line routings should be bludgeoned to death with a P7100 pump.
Note: If you're going to do this, I strongly recommend going beyond J30R7 hose. Pumps in the San Antonio area are starting to show biodiesel-blend notices, and 30R7 hose is not biodiesel-rated so I wanted to be current/ahead and put on biodisel-compatible hose. If you can find it, go at least to J30R9. I couldn't find 30R9 at the chain stores in the SA area, but Car Quest stores do have J30R14 (barricade/barrier style).
21Z - what's the better route you mentioned?
