Just a noticed a fuel leak on the 95'. Looks like it's pressure line between the filter and the sending unit.

Looks like its leaking from up inside the wheel well over the axle. (The clip that secures the lines is poped open, and it looks like the line was rubbing on sheet metal).

I can't find the dang lines anywhere, are they even still available?

I'm seeing a lot of repair kits, but I've always been told not to repair those plastic lines.

What are our options here? (We're supposed to be driving the wagon 10 hours to Myrtle here in a week).

Hey scoob!

Those repair kits work fine. I repaired lines with those kits that I bought at NAPA. They are made for that purpose. Never had any problem.

Tom,

Long time no see! I haven't really been around the forums much. Lurking around once in awhile. Smile

Gonna check with our usual shop tomorrow. After crawling around under the car, even if I can find the lines I don't feel like stuggling with the car up on jackstands.

Will check napa in AM too.

Thanks!

I also repaired lines. All three that connected to my sender on my winter wagon. Used the parts store repair kits, no problems.

when I replaced the fuel pump in morticia, the lines were rotted and I used the repair kits that they had at autozone. Worked fine. :-)

I also repaired plastic fuel lines on an LT1 vehicle using brass barbed fittings in a kit from the local auto store. I found them to be a bit of a PITA to get into the line (tight fit, pushing too hard kinks line) but they were there for two years and never leaked.

Some post on how to do it from other forums. Mtrhead79 and I rebuilt his a few weeks ago. The Male end of the line is the only thing we would not find.
