If its the main feed line you will have to get a new unit that goes into tank, or if there is enought sticking out maybe a compression fitting to connect them together temporary, ( witch i do not recamend because of possible fuel leak) If its the small line thats just a return line and has little pressure and can be fixed with gas line hose and a couple of clamps, but thats a temporary fix also.

1991 ford f150 fuel problem

Is it possible the fuel hoses are not hooked up right ? If you only changed the rear pump and the lines are correct, its possible the new pump damaged the check valve in the front pump. The valve could have been about to fail before replacing the rear pump.
You may be able to block the line going into the front tank and run the truck from just the rear tank.

The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank so you must first remove tank from car. After removing locate the wires going into tank. There is a large metal ring around wires. Remove ring by turning counter clockwise, then lift unit out of fuel tank. The pump is mounted in rubber at the end of fuel lines.

Replace a fuel pump on a 1993 Chrysler Fifth Avenue

It sounds like a fuel line broke, most likely because it rusted through. The fuel pump is running otherwise you wouldnt see any fuel spewing out from under the car. Get under the car and see where the line broke. In most cases, you can replace the broken section of line and it will be fine.
To answer your question though, to replace the fuel pump, you will need to remove the fuel tank from the car, as the pump is attached to the sending unit inside the tank. To remove the tank, you will need to disconnect the fuel filler neck, the fuel lines, and unplug the electrical connector, then get a jack under the tank and remove the straps holding the tank in the car. Lower the jack and you will be able to access the top of the tank where the sending unit is located. Romove the lock ring holding it in, and remove it from the tank.

Rear tank full and selected for use but draws from the front

hi your symptoms suggest that you have slight blockage either in fuel line or most likely at point where rear tank fuel line enters the switch over reason ? you say runs ok on rear tank at 55mph? but when demand for more fuel / speed above that pump /engine cannot deliver ? due to narrowing of fuel line (tuberculation) so check flow from r/tank and for any debri inside?
