    I got to drive her home tonight. It's been a tough week and a half. The lift is awesome, but I am awaiting my front driveshaft spacer and rear brake lines before I can wheel it. Here's the big problem /forums/images/icons/confused.gif . New gas tank, sending unit, fuel pump in. It has TBI and the pressure line is leaking a lot. There is the fitting that goes on top of the tank, some stainless braided line, and then it has a small clamp that goes to the other line (rubber? can't remember now) up to the engine. It is leaking where it is clamped. Clamp is tight. Anyone have a solution for that? I can take a pic in the morning if need be. I'd sure appreciate any help. 9 days and counting til the wheeling trip!
    Update:
    Here's a pic. Clamp is tight. Time to get on the phone and try to find a competent parts person /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif

    Maybe to big of a hose, or crack in hose next to clamp.

    Thanks, that seems to be the ticket! It's on order. Well at least now my broken truck is in my driveway instead of across town.
