I am trying to change the front fuel pump on my truck. I cannot get the fuel lines to go into the new fuel pump and stay.

If you are talking about area where arrows are you are probably missing the plastic clips to lock on. Auto parts may have them if not Ford dealer will.

Maybe you have it all figured out.

"Hands on" is the best way to see/know whether you have things snapped on correctly.

So I reckon the next best thing to learn is watching and listening to the other guy.

I am thinking we have two possible fuel line connections.

One being installing a module whereas you reuse the inlet and outlet top end (this 'connects' to the plastic body) I feel this is not what you are referring to as it is pretty simple to do.

I am swaying towards the two fuel line connections, basically where the tank connects to the truck. These two lines require a special (inexpensive) tool to disconnect them.

Many folk kinda of do not realize this and they damage the fitting (or a replaceable inner plastic part) while trying to fight the fitting loose.

Once damaged, it may not rejoin when you are ready to reassemble (until you replace the inner plastic part). Along with this, you sorta know there is a problem if the safety/ retainer clips will not go back on because the lines are not fully seated.

So, with the 'monkey see, monkey do mindset, To me, see-un is better than reading. I found this video on You Tube.
