Fuel line replacements

I have ruined my two rubber fuel lines that connect the pump/tank to the steel lines for fuel supply and return.

The local hyd shop says they can't find the threads to match for a compression fitting for custom made hoses.

I searched the archives and saw this question but never an answer. I'm sure half the people who have removed fuel tanks have trashed theirs, how are you reconnecting? I would suspect just push-on fuel line and band clamps at the connection to the steel lines after cutting off the flare nut. How do you handle the fuel pump connection?

Thanks in advance. js

I just replaced my line from fuel filter to pump. I used some rigid brake pipe, 5/16", and got some new compression fittings. I cut off the brake flares and bent it up then used the threaded part that was already on the brake pipe. I know that it is supposed to be compatible with the brake flare end, but it seems to be holding the compression ferrule tight and hasn't leaked yet. Knock wood.

Hmmm that sounds like good idea. I have my tank off the rover now wondering if I could get new rubber replacements or figuring out some alternate solution. My lines were corroded out bad.

Looks like might be able to push on fuel hose over the crushed ferrule and then use band clamp. Not ideal but better than nothing. Js

You can buy new ferrules at auto store for cheap.


I'm getting a rattle that I assume is coming from the hard line all the way from the fuel filter to the pump. I wouldn't suggest doing that. I'm going to change it out for some flex line and hose clamps
