Yes - the flexible line from the pump to the hard line on the frame rail
seems to be bad. I guess I will take it off and have it rebuilt.
If I was smart, I would do both of them. I will regret not doing this later.
What is the word on Mobil DTE13M? If I am going to make the switch, now
would be a good time. Are there any negatives with this stuff?
