it clips on the fuel filter, then slides into the fuel line. once its in, you'll have to pull the fuel line off of the old filter. (make sure you have some of those rags handy, the filter still has gas in it.)
here is the old filter & part number:
stoopid frame rail grease.. $@#!%*
after disconnecting the old filter, replace it with the new one (the bracket is bolted to the frame, the filter just slides out) and replace fuel lines. push on each one till you hear it *click*. then replace the safety catch.
I would recommend letting the truck sit overnight and/or releasing the fuel pressure. There's a Schraeder valve on the passenger side fuel rail that is easily accessible. It's covered with a black plastic cap.

Where's this schrader valve? front, back?? what do I do with it?? I'm looking into getting this done today
Thanks in advance..
The valve is on the passenger side fuel rail. It's about where the the cowl starts. It looks like a little straw coming off the top of hte fuel rail. A Schreader valve is the same type as on tires. In this case, just unscrew the cap. Then there's this little piece of rubber to pull off - or it may come off with the cap. Finally, with a rag around/over the valve, press the pin in the middle. I used an Allen wrench to press the pin.
I picked up the filter, used the S. valve, and even opened up my gas cap. But I couldn't find a tool like yours brooks, so I picked up a scissor like tool that looks like this. Anyone now what to do with this?
