2001 24V Return line replacement

I smelled diesel fuel and noticed fuel dripping near the frame on front drivers side. It appears to be leaking from the return line and tee near the back of block, all lines are rusty. How big of a job is it to replace all of the return lines?

Did you have to remove anything to get to it?

yes i had to take the fuel filter housing off because there is a bolt behind it that goes through a brace on the line to keep it in place

Hey,

I've never done it, but it looks like a pain just b/c where the line is!!

Here is a couple of pictures so you kind of see what you're getting into:

you might just try tightening the lines that go into the T mine leaked and they were just loose
