It's a long bed.
So many diesels, so little time.

Also Jack, the picture in your avatar is the EXACT truck I owned back in 1984. LS long bed with the Red and Silver! It was a 5-speed, and I sure put a lot of miles on that truck.

I'm getting the truck, and Paul's shop will look at the pump. Crossing my fingers that all will be good! Thank you everyone, and I'll be posting in the intro with pics of the new truck.

It's hard to believe it's been so long, but I made the move to the Seattle area, and drove the truck up from Southern CA, and it did great. Sadly, it's sat, because there was a nasty oil leak I needed to chase down, and I ended up totally remodeling the house I bought, doing all the work myself, which meant all vehicle stuff went on the back burner.

But, enough of that...I found the oil leak it was just the return line from the turbo, it was basically just hanging there.

But, back to this topic of this thread, there is a a new fuel leak but this one is easy to see, it's clearly coming from the fuel return banjo. Both return lines were cracked, so I replaced them and the clamps, and that slowed the leak considerably, but did not eliminate it. Any ideas on where it's coming from and how to fix? It is the one above the fuel cut-off, with the bleed screw in the middle of it, what ever that's for.
