300 Cat in 99 Safari return fuel line leak

May be buying my dad's beloved Safari that after sitting for few weeks has developed a fuel leak from the fuel return line that goes from the head all the way to the fuel tank up front.
It leaks too bad to drive at all. There was a service bullitin when brand new, replacing that line, and the shop was not familiar with the recommended material, so used their own idea of what should be used, which has finally failed. Apparently you have to raise the coach off of the frame to run this line and I was wondering if anyone here had experienced the same.

I'm not that familiar with Safari, did they build their own chassis or use Freightliner?
Can you get a copy of the bulletin ? or was it a recall ?
Can you see the leak ?
JMHO. With an existing line in place there has to be a way to snake a replacement line through. I can see having to drop the fuel tank, but raise the coach off the frame,I don't think so.

Splicing in just a section of it not an option?

Find one of the Yahoo Safari forums. You will probably get more detailed information from other Safari owners.
