I would rather deal with the nylon line fittings than the metal lines. At least you can replace the o-rings in the fitting vs trying to replace rigid metal lines that rot.

no body around here had orings. i didnt think you could just replace those anyway, wouldnt it depend on the connector the type and size oring?

as far as metal, if you coat them with something good and thick like undercoat they last longer than you have the car. they are a pain in the but to run though

Ya Size is important LOL~~~
I know when I had a need for o-ring that I removed,I went in to the local parts store he whipped out his....case of o-rings and was able to match it up real close ....it worked anyways...But if yours is not removable or completely FUBAR.. thats a problem to take in somewhere...*if u can find an o-ring seller...

No, you probably won't find the o-rings. But you will find the replacement connectors though. Though, you will need the repair kit to actually replace the entire connector, but why bother? Just buy the new connector, and using a scribe, remove the new o-ring and replace it. Voila!

BTW, those repair kits are $180 on Amazon...

the primary problem i think was the guy at the parts store wasent the normal guy. i dont think he knew what they had and didnt have. thats why i ended up with the repair kit. i went in there when i had the same issue with my last monte and the regular guy had a whole kit with all the nylon related stuff and i tried to tell the guy that was there and he just looked at me like i was a martian

that was the kit he had but i think he added to it. the stock one is a 45 is one issue, and the other was i thought you couldnt just replace the oring. if i could find a part number that would be good for all the 3/8 and 5/16 connectors i would order some, they cant be that expensive. and i may need another one because i am likely going to have to completely remove the line from the top of the tank too now so i can get at it. hopefully they still have the trunk access panel

Every once in awhile when I disconnect the fuel line from my fuel rail, it will leave an o-ring behind. So, they are removable.
