Classic Tube

Anyone in particular to deal with up there...? I called to order Fuel Lines and Brake lines for my 97 and the individual wasn't too familiar with their products for Land Rovers and was quoting me the wrong items.

I just bought a set of fuel lines from them. They did have to look up the parts but the description matched our trucks. The return line stated it was for a '97 Defender but it's the same for all years. The return line is too long to ship so they put a large radius bend in it which is quite easy to straighten out.

The fit was pretty good but not perfect, had to do a little tweaking here and there.

I think I paid about $200 for the supply and $130 ish for the return, from memory.

All in all very pleased.

Did you have your rubber hoses (the lines that connect to the fuel pump) changed to SS braided lines? When I asked they were confused....

No. ECR suggested getting the SS braided hoses because the rubber "dry rots". When I mentioned this to Classic Tube they said that it was not a problem they have encountered and the rubber in a SS braided hose would still be subject to the same "rot" if it happened. The SS braid just protects the rubber hose from abrasions and maybe UV degradation, but as it's under the car I don't think UV will be an issue.
