Default Need Advice: Fuel Line

While in the process of tearing down for changing out lim gaskets and such I noticed this:


It may be hard to see but when I removed the fuel lines from the hold downs I noticed what looked like a pin size hole . I cleaned it up but cannot tell if it is a kink or hole. Thought I might just splice and replace but the factory manual says that is a no-no.
Don't know if I put that kink or hole in there when removing or if it was already there as the kink/ hole is right where it clamps into the hold down. Trying to get this put back together to test out the ported LIM.
What should I do?
The fuel lines go all the way back to the filter and the Fac. Serv Manual says to replace the whole line. Looks like a big time PITA. Anyone have any suggestions or remedies?

don't think they go all the way back.

I think they're got a filter style connection at the bottom of the firewall.

At some point they transition to the steel lines that are by your fuel filter. Either way it still sounds like a pain.
