Default 1996 blazer fuel line leak

Hi all newbie here,

I have a 1996 blazer 4x4 4door. The fuel line is leaking between the filter and the tank. I have looked underneath but it is so tight you can't see much. My question is what do I need to do to replace this line. I am assuming I have to drop the tank? If so what do I need to watch for when dropping the tank. Any tips,tricks or secrets would be greatly appreciated.

If your 96 is similar to my 2000, the rigid line should turn into a plastic line somewhere between the filter and fuel tank.

plastic likes to kink so be careful when you drop the tank. i would just run a new plastic line to the filter, they make conversion adapters to go back to metal at the filter

There is also a used S10/Blazer parts house on Ebay out of Florida that sells the fuel line assemblies from pulled vehicles. I purchased a set that was super clean for $35 a few years ago. Might be a additional option for you to look into. What I liked is that he was pulling parts from non-rust belt S10/Blazers.
