Question about 1998 Ford Econoline
Has dual tanks
My Econoline is a 1995. There are fuel line running down that side of the frame rail. This is where the fuel filter is, these fuel lines have special connectors, which require a special tool to release. You may have a leaking connection, or a damaged fuel line. You'll have to inspect visually to determine.

there should be two straps holding the tank in place,,,,if you remove them the tank should drop down to where you can disconnect the feeder hose and go from there

You should be able to re-route a new section of line w/out any trouble. If the line is leaking due to rust, you might want to replace all the lines at once, since the rest of the system is probably rusting away also. If you plan on keeping the truck for a while, all the more reason to replace it all. I must add, I hate those rusting brake lines! Did mine over 2 times on y 90 F-250, salt and snow plowing do a number on them.

The leaking from one tank to another was covered by a recall from Ford. Not sure if they still foot the bill for installation of the required check valves. These are still available from the dealership. The rear one is the hardest to install. The check valve can be installed without pulling the rear tank. As for your front sender I would clean all of the connections to the sender and make sure it has a decent ground. If it still only reads at the 1/4 tank level you will have to replace the sender to rectify the problem.

It should not cause no problems but instead of removing the tank leave it in the truck take out all the fuel in the tank and jus discontinue use of it. This will save you alot of time and trouble and i also suggest that if anyone besides you drives this vehicle then i would put a locking gas cap on it so it cant be accessed at anytime except by you.

You are right. There are three pumps. It sounds like the transfer pump in the front tank is bad. The in tank pumps just supply the high pressure pump to keep it primed. You need the front pump.
