Gas or Diesel? Engine size? If it's Gas yours was under the recall as well all 90.91.92.93 where covered, here's the info from Ford.
CROSS TANK FUEL FLOW CONDITION: DAMAGED CHECK VALVE TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN Reference Number(s): 93S68,  Date of Issue:   September, 1993 Related Ref Number(s): 93S68 ARTICLE BEGINNING CROSS TANK FUEL FLOW CONDITION APPLICATION Model(s): All 1990-1992 Ford F-Series Trucks equipped with 4.9, 5.0, 5.8 or 7.5 Liter engines and Dual Fuel Tanks Certain 1993 Ford F-Series Trucks equipped with 4.9, 5.0, 5.8 or 7.5 Liter engines and Dual Fuel Tanks Recall No: 93S68 & 93S68 Additional Information Date: September, 1993 SAFETY RECALL 93S68 AFFECTED VEHICLES All 1990, 1991, 1992 and certain 1993 model F-Series vehicles equipped with 4.9, 5.0, 5.8 or 7.5 Liter engines and dual fuel tanks. REASONS FOR RECALL Some of the affected vehicles may experience a cross tank fuel flow condition due to a damaged check valve in the fuel pump/sender assembly. Fuel may be supplied from one tank and some or all of the unused fuel may be returned to the other tank. Should this occur, the capacity of the receiving tank may be exceeded and fuel may overflow from the filler cap. Fuel spillage in the presence of an ignition source could potentially result in a fire. To correct this condition, the fuel pressure regulator will be replaced and a check valve will be installed between each fuel supply line and fuel tank. FREE FUEL LINE REMOVAL TOOL Standard fuel line removal tools can be used to disconnect fuel lines. However, because of the number of vehicles to be serviced, two free tools (# T93T-9550-AH) will be provided to each Ford dealer. These tools will be in your next Dealer Mail System (DMS) shipment (DMS packing slip #930902). PARTS KIT CODES The required parts kit code for each vehicle will be shown on the attached VIN listing and will be printed at the top of each Owner letter. Ask owners for the kit code shown on their letter when the owner calls for a service appointment.
