Fuel pump leaking badly

I just left my truck at the mechanic to find a fuel leak that was getting bad. They just called back and said the fuel pump was the cause. I am going to have to have them do it as my physical condition and lack of a place keeps me from doing the work myself. My question to the forum is..how many labor hours are usually charged for doing the job on the truck in my signature?

Thanks for any info given,
Dan

2 hours wouldn't surprise me. Maybe more. Its not a horrible job, but it's not fun either.

This place, who I have always trusted is quoting me around $1000 in labor alone.

According to the book you are also suppose to pull the turbo and the filter housing. For a shade tree mechanic neither have to be pulled.

I am also to the point that on certain items I either can't do or just don't want to do it myself. So when I take it to a mechanic I just bite down hard on the bullet and pay him what he wants.

It has ben a few years but my buddy has his 96 7.3 fuel pump go bad. If I remember right our local shop also pulled the turbo. I took the turbo off my 96 3 times to fix a leak and I can tell you it is a major pain in the butt!! To get on or off. I can do a 99 -2003 turbo in 1/4 of the time it takes to do a 96. So sounds about right. If the turbo is pulled.

I had pulled the fuel pump couple times. It isn't that bad. The only part that is pain in the rear, is to disconnect the banjo in the back of the fuel pump. I believe that it is 32mm closed socket wrench that I had to use. Turbo can be pulled as optional. I chose not to do that. Just take a a bit longer to disconnect the banjo that way. Two hours would do the whole job. If it is bad leak, it is the weep hole, on the fuel pump, that opened.
