What you have is commonly known as a "dually" (because it has dual rear wheels) Essentially the truck is identical to others of that year except for the rear differential which has "floating" axles (likely a Dana unit). The best manual would be the original chevy shop manual...Otherwise try and find a chilton or motors manual for that year.
I don't quite understand what your question heading means...Are you considering swapping the engine?

1985 f150 lariat with dual tanks, rear tank rusted and leaking, would like to know what to plug to make front tank work on its own with required fuel pressure. its a 302

I see that you have not received an answer yet. I had a dual tank Diesel which had a switch under the dash to change tank feeds. Both tanks reported fuel amounts to the same fuel gauge as each tank was switched on.

If this is the system you have (using gasoline) then simply turning the dash control should isolate the rear tank. If yours is different, you need to look underneath the truck at the fuel line routing.

For gasoline engines there was an idea to meet EPA Emissions standards by closing the fuel loop. This meant that unused fuel that was brought to the engine was returned back to the fuel tank. Some things were different for Trucks by weight Class and because of the EPA rules, trucks keep their carburetors while cars went to fuel injection. The "light" Trucks changed to fuel injection before "heavy" Trucks.

Most of the fittings to fuel components can have a taper machined to match fuel components only. There can be different thread seats, even Metric for replacement parts. Your best bet to match components is disconnect the problem part, take it with you, and then get a cap plug to block the flow. This is providing that the rear tank does not need the loop anymore.

How to change a chevy crate motor 350/330hpfrom electrical fuel pump to a manual fuel pump

In order to change your fuel pump you have to remove as much gas as possible before removing your fuel tank, then unbolt the fuel pump cover then disconnect the fuel lines and replace the pump. With the proper tools its a DIY job.

Sounds like the fuel pump is going bad(or in this case,has gone bad). I suggest that you change the fuel pump and use a fuel cleaner in your gas tank as dirty gas may have caused the problem to begin with.

How to change fuel lines

There should be only 2 fuel lines and a vent line coming out of the tank. The vent line is for fumes that are routed to the charcoal canister-part of the evaporative emissions system, and the two fuel lines are the main feed line to the filter and then on to the engine, and the other gas line is the return line from the engine back to the gas tank. All fuel injected systems have a feed line and a return line. The return line is for fuel not used but sent back to the tank by the fuel pressure regulator.
Nowadays, rather than replace metal lines, shops can use the plastic fuel lines (they don't rot!) and special connectors to fit new fuel lines. YouTube has lots of videos on replacing fuel lines.

Ethanol really causes problems in cars that sit around.Thanks for us going green huh?It decomposes non-metal parts in the gas system.If the car sits around for something like 6 weeks the gas does go bad.You have to siphon the tank as much as possible.When filling up,add octane boost first then gas.It still may not work though.I did all that for a scooter and it still didn't work.So if you try it,when you add gas,probably only use 4 or 5 gallons,so you don't waste too much money if it doesn't work,and it is enough to mix the octane boost fairly well.Good luck bro'!That's all i have for now.And gas is gas no matter where you buy it.All those additives the companies claim clean this or that is just sales.Since fuel injection came out,companies are required to add a certain amount of detergent to keep injectors clean anyways.And 93 octane is not better than 87 octane enough to pay 20 cents more per gallon.

My car takes 2 tries to start.usually for me if I step on the gas before turning the ignition it will start.but i think Im over flooding the system by doing that.what do I need to check the pumpfilter or...

local libraries usually have haynes manuals to tell you what's fuel pump is attached under the back seat on top of the should never pump the gas starting fuel injected cars since they came out.however,if your fuel pump was bad,it probably would not start.try air filter and gas filter.if those are fine try vacuum lines.

1976 gmc 350 - no fuel getting to carb, I disconected the fuel line from the carb & cranked - nothing came out but I could heaar the pump working and feel some air being blown out - yes there is fuel...

yes it is probably the pump or a problem in one of the fuel lines but i would bet more on the fuel pump or suction line into the tank. If you can take the line off going to the tank put it in a jug of gas and see if the pump will pump it to the carb or the engine will run.
