    Default 753 fuel line dropped

    On the 753 fuel line I think it dropped in the tank ,now I can feel the return line but cant seem to find the pickup line (are they side by side) You have to feel for them right because you cant see them , is this right?

    Got it fixed!!! WHAT ever you do if you have this problem DO NOT remove the engine you really do not have to remove ANYTHING to get to this plug once I found the elbow it took all of 15 minutes to fix it. It is in plain sight if you know where to look.

    Exactly, use "search" for plenty of stories on "creativity" but no need to drop... Once lifted the cab, I laid a piece of plywood across to support my torso, while my legs we sticking out front.

    Changed the fuel lines & bulb while I was at it.
