Take the time to line her up correctly, or it looks funny when the bed goes back on.

PULL THE VACUUM LINE OFF THE FPR AND LOOK FOR GAS. DO A FUEL PRESSURE TEST IF YOU CAN

----------

In many cases Removing the Bed Helps in the aiding of repairs. ie. Fuel pump replacement, hanger and shackle replacement, etc

1)the fuel cap filler is held on with 3 bolts 7mm?

2)there is an electrical disconnect at the bumper for the taillights.

3)The bed is held on with 6 torx 55 bolts. 2 of the bolts closest to the cab are longer than the other 4. I recommend buying 2 torx 55 sockets in case one breaks
4 or 5 of the bolts can be accessed from underneath and should be hit with a rust penetrator
I recommend at least one of the following, impact wrench, 1/2 ratchet with a pipe or a 1/2 breaker bar. it takes some muscle to remove the bolts.

4)The bed can be slid down for a fuel pump replacement or removed my 2 Men. a cherry picker.

5) In the event you are removing the bed for a fuel pump replacement. MAKE SURE YOU DISCONNECT THE NEG BATTERY TERMINAL.

6) You should change your fuel filter hile the bed is off. tool required or equivalent 5/16 FF performance tool W83130

7) I replaced my bolts with regular hex bolts. Ford wanted $16 a bolt. I ordered my online for less than $3 each. the 2 cloest to the cab are 12m x 1.75 x 120mm and the other 4 are 12m x 1.75 x 100mm

8) I changed the rear hangers and shackles on my rear leaf springs. I used Dorman 722-010 and 722-001. all 4 pieces were less than $100. They come in a kit with everything you need, bolts etc. I used a grinder to grind the heads of the bolts off. this only took about 10 minutes a hanger. I had a dewault grinder and bought 2 metal grinding wheels at the home depot. I only used 1 they were about $3. I had a hard time getting the bushing out of the eye of the spring. I finally decided to use my drill and a good 1/4 bit. I drilled the rubber out that was in the middle of the bushing. the rest just slide out. I greased up the new bushing and temporarily put the bolt in and hammered it in the eye. You don't want to torque the bolts that attach the spring to the shackle until the truck is on the ground.

Well guys. I checked all the fuses and they looked good. so i took the bed off. not bad. only broke one of the bolts. and i found that disconnect thank you =). so i disconnected the lines and the pump spit gas. so i went into the engine bay and checked all the plugs. then i did a spark test. check vac lines and then it stuck me. Timing belt. sure as shit.... it was broken.....

so i took the top rad tube off, the fan shroud and the serpentine belt.... anything eles that would make this easier? is there a thread for this?

richarddhoward, thanks for the bed idea.
modelageek, thanks for your help.
And i was diagnosing the problem by checking the pump. i dont have a pressure test tool and i figured if i take the lines off and turn the key.... fuel should come out. and it did.... so it wasnt all lost by taking the bed off. thank you guys again. almost everything that has happened to my truck is on this site. =) glad i found it
