88YJ vaccuum line sizes & lengths? Also fuel pumpQ

I tried search but can't find anything on what sizes and lengths of vaccuum line I'll need to replace all the lines on my 88 YJ. Does anyone know, or could point me to a link that would tell me?

Also, my fuel pump is leaking gas. I figured I'd just replace it and went to remove the hard line to it earlier. It seems the hard line is fused to the nut and the whole thing wants to turn. Also, then I do turn the nut slightly it "rocks" inside the fuel pump housing. Not sure how to describe it, kind of like if I back it off a hair I can move the nut side to side. Like it has been forced in there at some time in the past and if hosed up.

It appears as if I have plenty of slack to hacksaw the tube off just above the net and re-flare the fuel line. Anyone done this and know of any problems that I am not seeing? Anyone know if it's a standard size tube that a $15 tubing flarer from the parts store will fir?

You can buy vaccuum line at any parts store. It comes by the foot on a big roll about 50 cents a foot. Just buy some and cut to the length you need. Hint do one at a time.

Yeah, but are there a bunch of different sizes?

On my 300Zx there are a lot of diffrent sizes of tubing.

And yeah, you'd be crazy to pull all the lines off at one. You'd have yourself a regular 3D jigsaw puzzle, lol.
