Leaking fuel line

On my 7.3L, the hose that feeds the driver's side fuel port has sprung a leak. Should I buy the engine hoses pack or try to have it made locally?

If this thing is a tire pressure gauge, they certainly overcharge for it and sell it as a fuel pressure gauge for $44. I realize its not a snap-on grade tool either and I get what I pay for.

Have you ever turned up the pressure regulator on your V3 manifold?

I had mine turned up and it looks like it was too much and might have been contributing to the strain on my pump.

Dumb question but is that safe for the electronics?

I'm guessing that since my pump is drawing over 15 amps, that it could soon be time for a scorpion replacement.

When I get home, I'll try to blow out the fuel supply line.

It's entirely possible that I have wet oil that shut down the filter.
