    Default Pass side fuel line

    My pass side fuel line decided to break and lost a full tank of gas. Anyone know where to buy one or would it have to custom made? Also if anyone has a spare fuel rail theyíre selling, Iíll buy it thanks in advance

    I made a set of lines for my 88. Used the original end pieces near the pump, filter, and fuel rails. I used compression fittings and sections of steel line from the parts store. Someone here said there is something better than compression fittings to use but I can't remember what they said. I'd use nicopp line if I had it to do over again.

    Edit: in a pinch, use can use rubber hose to patch up what you have.

    The end pieces on the fuel rail/line side are frozen together and thatís where it broke. Thatís why Iím also looking for a fuel rail. Finding a fuel rail isnít too hard or even going aftermarket isnít a big deal, itís the line i canít find anywhere. Been looking at them fancy fuel rail with the an fittings but not sure how Iíd run that all the way to the filter

    don't think anyone sells this pre-made. Passenger side is the feed line too, so if you use rubber make sure its pressure rated. Or just dump all the steel and use plastic, that will work fine too. I would absolutely not run that entire length in rubber though.

    If you do it in plastic, you can use the fittings down by the frame. In stock form it transitions from metal to plastic to run from frame to engine, then back to metal to run up the side of the engine. Just unhook that down low, cut the original plastic off, and attach the new plastic to the original fitting.

    Interesting, I didnít know it wasnít a one straight line to the filter. Imma go down there and see if I can take it off. I think thereís a shop nearby that can make a hose

    plastic flex from tank to a steel line up above the tank. Metal from there to down near the filter. Plastic from there to the filter. Plastic from the other side of the filter to steel up to the front. Plastic from front frame to steel line up the side of the engine. Through the fuel rail and it's two plastic sections that join side to side, and the return trip is pretty much a mirror of the feed side except no fuel filter.
