Filler hose on CJ7??????????

Hey guys,

I need to replace the 1" filler hose on my CJ. The catalogs are wanting $30 for it. I have a body lift so i want something a little longer.

Where can I find 1" Fuel hose any length? Will a local auto place have it? Thanks.

Just out of curiosity, have you tried the dealer. I bought replacement fuel and vent hoses for my 85 a year or so ago, both only came to about $20 or so.

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] HOLD EVERYTHING! Don't do either one of those things. Not very long ago a Jeeper posted to this board that the place to go for fuel-compatable hose was a BOAT SHOP. You see, inboards have the fuel fillers on the transom and the tanks are in the sides or in the bilge and it takes hose to get it there.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Filler hose on CJ7

I just finished my YJ tub swap and with the 2" body lift I needed to lengthen the hose as not to bind with body flex
I went to the Sears hardware and got a connector to attach 2 hoses together (plastic thingie)
I got a 5" piece and this gave me the length that I needed

I have also heard of the boat fuel line
Need to create those bends though

Re: Filler hose on CJ7??????????

Finding 1 1/4" ID hose for the saddle tanks on my K20 was very difficult. I finally consulted some of the local street rodders and learned that they go to a rubber hose manufacturer/retailer. In the Minneapolis/St. Paul yellow pages, for instance, there were many listings under Hose & Tubing - Rubber & Plastic. I was able to locate a rubber hose retailer that sold fuel grade rubber hose. I paid $1.00 per foot. There were many diameters available and the hose I purchased is better quality than OEM. Good luck.

One of the main reasons for going with the OEM hose is that it is a molded hose. When I replaced mine I felt that getting the rather tight bends with a piece of straight hose may end up with kinking.

Brad is right. Molded hose is much easier to install, no kinking. With my K20 I didn't have that option, I had to create a bend using other materials.
