The 93-99 design is also easy..

The biggest issue with them is that the flare nut will sometimes become rusted onto the fuel line. That'* the exact issue I have with my 99. I tried taking it off and the line started twisting! That'* with holding back on it and using plenty of Aerokroil.

I'm just gonna leave that for someone else, who'* unsuspecting, to change!! LOL. They'll end up having to replace the whole line when they snap it.

They actually have line segments available (about 12") with the nut on the end ready to use w/a compression coupling in the kit. Used a couple of those suckers now and boy are they handy Just cut the old and/or new lines to make them fit, and tighten the coupler down and you're about good as new.

hey, there'* Mr. NAPA man! What'* the difference between "Silver" and "Gold".... Gold was about twice the price, so of course I bought the Gold, only the best for the bonnie.

I'll have to check into that. I didn't know that such a kit existed! Will make life so much easier! Who sells them?

I got mine at a small town Carquest. Just ask for "fuel line repair kit" or something along those lines.
