I don't understand. There is a rubber moisture barrier on the male end of the fuel pump connector. You can improvise.

The fuel line coming from pump goes into a silver round 2 1/2 diameter maybe filter, found small pin holes in that unit which connects with blue sleeve to hose line for feeding the truck. My first inpression was wrong as the gasket is sealed in side that hose line connecting to the blue clip making a sealed unit.

The new Question is their is a hard plastic line inside connecting that unit to the pump. Can I just replace that top silver unit, cut hose and crimp line again or do I need the whole system that drops in tank?

OH, YOU MEAN HYDRAULIC CONNECTION. Sorry about my caps key. I shoud have bought a new keyboard instead of fixing this old Amiga keyboard to go with XP laptop.
The fuel pump was referred to as a fuel module. It had a pickup screen and regulator and coil that helped keep pressure and heat ok. It had to be pressed in like a spring and then you had to use a tool to tighten it to a certain inch or ft. Lbs. But it came as one piece, and if you have something else, I don't think it matters(gaskets and sealing) in side the tank. The fittings on it, pressure and return(filter too) all came with blue caps, removed before installation of either the pump, or filter that is seperate but about 2 and 1/2 inches in diameter. All the blue caps go in your tool box for sealing 5/16ths and 1/4 and 3/8ths stuff(depending on truck). And the fittings on the lines were used over. They are installed on the lines and the hoses were snapped in place. If you are improvising let me know, This is important high pressure system so you cannot use regular hose, and if you are using injection hose and not factory fittings, you gotta at least flare the ends, and slide em on enough for two band clamps each one. In the tank, not so important as long as it has a clear flow from the screen to the two pressure and return lines. If I am reading this wrong remember, I am nuts. Lol just kidding. I'll check back after I light my new furnace. In an hour or so.
