TDI spill return - what's the ID?

i need to temporarily repair the spill return lines so I can drive the truck to SCARR tomorrow. Trevor doesn't have the 200TDI spill return in stock right now... Does anyone know the inner diameter of the lines?

Thanks!

You got a Mercedes dealer in town, pt#2122.0.207/20 the open end looks like 3mm.
Got a nice new roll sitting on my lap, of which is no good to you I know.

Thanks guys. I assume just a regular hose clamp is fine since it's not high pressure.

Go to a Mercedes parts place, dealer, or shop.
Line is the same as 60s - late 90s.

Not a good choice.

I used to use clear vinyl on my diesel rabbit, it did discolor & get stiff but it didn't leak. Had it on there for a long time.

Yes, 4mm, 5/32 is the correct size. I use silicone vacuum hose at that size with spring clamps. It is nice and flexible and should last forever.

I should add... This is with the later style spill rail. The original style used nylon tubing and would be different. My suggestion if you have the early style is to buy the new style and replace the buna-N hose that comes with it.

How do I know if it's the later style? Engine is a disco 200tdi.

They old style has nylon tubing (it is stiff) like the rest of the fuel lines. The newer style has flexible hose. The is just the three hoses joining the injectors.
