Not out of the woods yet regarding my fuel pump.

So the time came for when had to replace my fuel pump. When my truck was shut off for a period of time,
it would lose pressure in the fuel lines causing my truck to struggle when I would turn it over. In the precess
of removing the old fuel pump I broke the green clip that holds one of the fuel lines on. Hopefully is something
they will have at the ford dealership when I go tomorrow. Here are some pictures:


Old fuel pump which is clearly broken, but I'm not sure if that was the cause of the problem.

I cannot see exactly what you want but it looks like a hose clamp will work in the place of the clip? One of the ones you buy at the store and tighten with a screwdriver?
