V8 3.5 Fuel Leak

All


I've mentioned this before but I've now found a picture where I can show the problematic part.
The tube circled in Red has a hole in it. I have managed to complete a temp fix using epoxy and fiberglass matting (a radiator repair kit). But want to order a replacement part.


Can anyone help with a part ID on this?


Thanks
Mark

From the part catalog, it looks like the steel tube is integral with the carb. If it is not repairable, I would guess it is a press fit into the carb body.

The crossover piece is item 8: Allbrit.de - Ersatzteile fr LAND ROVER & MG ROVER

Part 612505 for the pipe with olive 614555 and nut 534790. All cheap and available parts.

You could also easily replace it all with a few fittings from a hardware store. A couple of tee compression fittings and tubing. It is probably all 3/8".

Yes unfortunately its the tube that seems to be a press fit into the carb and therefore not easily replaceable. I suppose I will have to tidy up my temp fix into a more permanent fix and then eventually replace the carb(s).

I don't see why the tube can't be replaced in the carb body. Is it leaking at the carb joint or at the compression fitting? If at the fitting, cut a bit off of the tube and install a new olive.

There seems to be one or two pin prick type holes about midway down the tube.
