Since the weather has been warming back up, I have forgotten that I still have a problem with the truck cranking because of air in the fuel system. I think I'm convinced that the fuel lines supplied to me from AD are now dry cracking and allowing air into the system. I recently discovered fuel leaking from the top of the tank. Something I think is attributed to cracked fuel lines under pressure... It does not leave puddles, but it does drip occasionally.

 

Any thoughts?

 

I'm thinking I might want to redo the line with something else, but dunno what. I also have the JIC(IIRC) fittings, which would need to go or I have to retrofit everything... This makes me sad...

How old are your fuel lines? Mine are 5 or six years old and appear to be in good shape. Mine came with the blue parker hose.

I've always used Trident A1-15 fuel line.  If you price shop you can get it for a decent price.

 

I don't want to go into all the pure awesomeness of it, but it's great.  I know it will outlast the truck, so only competition at this point is the engine...

 

Just as an example, a buddy redid his fuel system with 1/2" blue line, he had it a certain way for about a week I think, then he noticed that the way he had it plumbed had it rubbing on the throttle linkage and had worn it pretty good.  Well I had plumbed mine the same way 6 months prior with trident line, so when he told me about his problem, I checked mine, sure enough there was rubbing, but you couldn't tell by looking at the hose.
