I've seen multiple reports of using the silicon tape used on fuel lines with 0 problems.
I have a porter-cable heat gun. Would be perfectly safe as long as you don't crank the temperature to max

Contemplating challenge.

Lemme see if I can buy the line by itself first, then the barb thing is next.

I think you have some options to replace the entire line rather than install a patch if you so desire. I have been doing some searching for parts for your truck, but DOD computer syatems bloack many sites.
I don't see this option on Compnine. All I see is a VIN decoder.

Guess Compnine is no longer in the part sales business.

Here is a ebay lisiting for a brand new fuel line with part number for a 2004 Silverado. Not sure if it is a match for your specific truck or if it is the line you are in need of.

Here is a fuel return line:

That return line is useless for me. 2004'* don't have a return, they are a "returnless" system.

That first one you posted though, looks to be the right diameter and maybe length though.

The fuel line posted is number 3, and is a feed line. The line labeled number 2 is a return line for flex fuel trucks.

Gonna verify this with the local dealer before ordering by taking my pics up there.
