    #$$%#$!@#$ Fuel Filter, ????\'s Now What?

    OK, after my truck started to Stu..Stu..Studder I decided to replace the fuel filter. Picked one up today but now I can not get the (*&$_(@^$_(*$ old one off the truck.

    Front braided hose is off but back solid line won't budge. Tried to use my &)(*&)( tiawan made flair nut wrench and snapped it in too. Now I have the )(*$@#*&)(*^ flair nut rounded off. _)(*$)&$_)*(#@&%_*(#@&%_(*&$_*(&@#*(&$&

    What pressure does this run at?? I have plenty of hose laying around that will handle pressure and fuel. Any suggestions???

    Can I just cut the line and splice in a section of hose??

    Need suggestions tonight if possible, as she's setting in the driveway.

    And I thought this one was a simple swap. *&)_*(&%@_(#%&_(*&%

    Been there, soak with penetrating oil, use piece of steel behind flats on tubing and slap opposite flat with hammer.
    Shock will break rust loose.

    Guess I just needed to bitch alittle, went back outside and took some big @ss vise grips and got her loose.

    Only &%_(*&%_@ problem now is the swivel on the line infront of the filter is leaking like a stuck pig. I guess another trip to the autoparts store is in order.

    Just needed to vent as this week has been one PITA after another.

    I thought bitchin' was part of the fun....gives ya a reason to wear knuckle bandages.......not to be splel checkin', but I don't think #$$%#$!@#$ has the "!" before the @....I think it's after the third "#" and between the "$$".....I may be rwong.....

    Stuck?...Hell no..I still got some gas left..
