Well in the process of replacing the filter the line to the engine twisted and is leaking, anyone know where to buy pre bent lines or what size the line is. I am likely going to do the pump but a filter is cheaper.

i converted mine to nylon all the way to the engine. metal doesnt last long around here. if your dropping the tank you can start at the metal there on the sender, they have adapter bushings and you can get adapters for the filter or just use nylon quick connects and a filter with that on both sides. they have a adapter like the one on the rail so its way easier to run than metal too. just takes a little experiance, after you do a few it ends up being way easier. the carquest here had everything coils of 3/8ths feed and 5/16ths return and all the adapter bushings and rail connections.

Places like AutoZone sell short lengths of steel fuel line with fitting that goes into the filter....since we are only talking 40-50 psi, you can use a compression fitting to join the lines...

That'* sounds better than replacing the whole line... Is the feed line 3/8?

yes its 3/8ths, but those kits need good metal to attach to, not likely going to find that.

Just used a compression fitting. How do I determine what harness I have, there is harness CRD, and harness HEN HER. How do I know which I have
