Awesome repair but concerned...
I made an account today after reading this post. At first I thought, man, awesome thinking and good job, and I still feel that way! Thank you for sharing this fix, as it seems at first glance to be pretty stellar. However I have a major concern. As I read the data on those silicone elbows, there's a specific disclaimer from the manufacturer of the hoses and elbows that states: NOT COMPATIBLE WITH FUEL OR OIL
Has anyone had this repair for a long time now? How has the repair held up?
I almost stopped at Ford on my way home today. I recently put a remanufactured engine through Ford in the truck, and when I got the truck back, the hose was cracked and leaking and so was the main vacuum tank hose, causing the climate control options not to function properly. Tisk tisk Ford service techs. lol.
Also, does anyone know where I can find diamond plate bed rails? I took the grey plastic rails off of my bed, because I just didn't like them. I like the plastic fender protectors but, I'd like the diamond plate along the bed and tailgate. Thanks y'all.
