One of the lines is the supply from tank to engine, one is the return from engine to tank, and one is a brake line. that is an easy fix but mine did not look as neat as factory when done. If anyone knows of a great tubing bending tool or method please start a new thread or PM me as I did mine in two pieces ( rubber hose at center in feed and return line)
Thanks. I believe it is probably the feed line. Would it be easier to replace from the tank to that tricky spot or just splice some line in? I don't think its under much pressure, wouldn't some rubber fuel line work just fine? I have spliced it on my powerstroke pushing 80psi through it with no issues at 130,000 miles.
