Re: Leaking Fuel Line
Is this a Jeep you're asking about, or a car? I'm confused [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
That should be just a short piece of hose connecting the tank outlet to the steel line that runs along the frame to the engine, right? On a CJ you drop the tank, which is a moderate amount of work, and then replace the hose, which is no big deal.
If you have a rubber hose running all the way to the engine it should be replaced with steel. You don't want hose there where it can get cut by sticks, stones or road debris.
There should be sufficient gasoline in the carb to run the engine long enough to refill the line.
Congrats on the job! Is it what you wanted?
