Remove the plumbing that hooks the turbo to the intake make sure not to loose the square cut oring that hooks to the turbo on th y pipe. Remove the fuel filter housing there should be 3 or 4 fuel lines that need removed. Then there will be a icp solenoid that needs the connector removed. And I think one plug that hooks all the wiring on the fuel housing to the main harness. There will be 2 13mm bolts holding the housing down to the engine. You should be able to wiggle the housing and slide it forward some make sure you get some new fuel lines while your doing this as well I think its 3/8 fuel line make sure you cut them same length as original. Go ahead and get new clamps. Once you got the fuel filter housing out the way you can get to the bolts on the fuel pump. I used to take a cutting disk to the turbo pedistal but I ended up taking a wrench I think its like 1 1/4 wrench (not for sure) I took the wrench and cut it in half. Grinded the box end for clearance then heated it up and bent it. You then loosen that large banjo bolt on back of the fuel pump take care not to loose the two sealing washers I usually just slide to bolt back and leave it there. Then take the 2 bolts loose that bolt it to the block. Take a heal bar and pop it up. When reinstalling the pump if you cant get to bolts over cause the cam is holding the pump up you may need to turn the motor over so it slides down easier. Then start the 2 bolts leave em loose so that you can start the big banjo bolt. The put you new fuel lines on the fuel filter housing with new clamps reinstall that hook up the electrical connections. When you get ready to put the y pipe on make sure and use some brake clean to wipeout the residue on the orange rubber hoses. You may need to add some grease or vaseline to hold the square cut oring on the turbo then reinstall the y pipe. Sit back look it over make sure its hooked up good give it a start and then verify no fuel leaks. You will need a long flat blade screw driver to get to some of the clamps.

The first post is correct. And that is a 1 1/4 banjo bolt for the fuel to the heads. It can be a pain so be very patient and observe your work very closely. I replaced mine with out removing the turbo and it was very difficult, I was able to get the large bolt in easier by snugging the 2 fuel pump bolts down to hold the pump steady. The wrench was an open end and side access wrench (bought a full set at Harbor freight ($26.99) and used each end back/fourth just 1/4 turn at a time until snug (40ft lbs max). I left the charge tube off until I could see all fittings were not leaking. But about a 2 1/2 hour job depending on your skill set. good luck.

The fuel pump is located under the driver side seat in the frame rail. two 10mm bolts hold the pump to the frame there are two clips that hold the fuel lines to the pump good luck kdc744 . this pump is for fuel only . for fuel to the injectors. you have a high pressure oil pump for operation of the injectors

Why am I having fuel issues with a 97' f-250 7.3 powerstroke, put new sensors on everything, new fuel lift pump, glow plugs,filter, new tank filter, cleaned all the lines from tank to the fuel bowl, s


If this situation occurs after a period of time then check the tank vent correctly at the vent valve on top of the tank. If it occurs reasonably quickly then check the fuel return lines from the injectors to the tank for obstruction ,kinks ,squashed etc preventing the fuel free access to the tank. check the pressure regulator to the pump is holding sufficient pressure to maintain pressure to the pumpin the pump

How to remove fuel injectors


Need more info. 97 Ford diesel is a 7.3 Powerstroke, in which case the injectors are under the valve covers and held in by a sliding bracket secured by a retaining bolt. On a 6.9 diesel 85-88 I believe, the injector is unscrewed from the top of the head using a 1" deep socket.

How to change the fuel pump on a 1997 F350 7.3


fuel pump in the tank, or the injection pump. If its the injection pump, please get a buddy to help you. If its the intank pump, you have to unstrap the tank, (make sure its as empty as possible) and unhook the fuel filler hose and the vent line. You will also see two or three fuel lines coming out of a round thing (for lack of a better description). You may need a special took to remove the lines. You will be able to get the tool from your local parts shop. Also, the clips that hold the lines on m (depending what style) may be the type where there is a spring inside of the coupling which needs to be pushed off...soooo hard to describe. Hopefully thats enough to get you going....

I need to replace my fuel pump on my 04 Ford F250 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel.


There are 2 different versions of fuel pumps on these trucks. There is a frame mounted one just under drivers side up in framerail right behind the engine. If it is not there then it is in tank and you will need to drop your tank. 2 straps hold it in. Make sure you know how much fuel is in and and that you are aware that it m ay be heavy. Once out remove the twist ring holding it on by twisting it counterclockwise. it will pop off. You may need to tap it with a hammer and a screw driver. Once removed reach down inside. There are 2 clips holding it into a plastic housing. go to the bottom side of the clips and pull up carefully. too much and you can break them. You will feel it pop loose. then you can remove the pump and back together you go.

Put new glow plugs in ran fine for 1 day now it wont start..


You may want to surf around on some of the powerstroke forums for detailed answers, but I know the powerstrokes use oil pressure to control the injectors so you may have some problems with the high pressure oil pump.
Again, it is just a guess. I just wanted to point you to some of the Ford Powerstroke forums which may be of much more help for you.
Good luck..
