I have a couple of leaks, 1 at the fuel line on an injector and 1 on the fuel line at the high pressure pump. I was going to replace the fuel lines myself but wasn't sure if I was opening a can of worms trying to Bleed the Fuel system when I'm done with it? The Coach starts up and runs fine. Only issue is the 2 leaks. I did tighten both fuel line nuts, (17mm nut size? ) and it did slow leak down. I was afraid of stripping nut so backed off on leverage a bit.
I know I can order parts ( new fuel line for specific Injector # from Cummins, I have my engine serial number and they will ship. My only concern is the Air I let into system once I removed both fuel lines. I also want to change both of my fuel filters, 5 year old fuel has been in tank, still running well but getting old. I live in Las vegas and it gets hot every summer, tomorrow will be 110 degrees.
Only 1000 Miles put on it in the 5 years I've owned it. 40,000 total miles when I bought it. I changed engine and tranny when I got it home from a 600 mile trip from seller. Have only put several hundred miles on since I changed the fluids. Fluids are new but sitting for 5 years.
It's a 1992 Safari Ivory with a Cummins 8.3 Turbo Diesel ( mechanical, no computer ). I've change a few gas engines in the past ( when I was young ) and pretty sure I could do it myself, or would it be better just to have a shop in Las Vegas or Henderson, Nevada do it? I do change my owe engine and tranny fluid.
Please let me know your thoughts and if you have any good Cummins 8.3 mechanics in the Las Vegas Area, if you think I should use a mechanic.
Below are a couple of pictures of the leaks I'm having.
Thanks for any advice. AL
