Fuel Line leak:
Diagnosing a fuel line leak.
I stopped the car and while it was running I saw this fuel pouring on the ground.
The rubber line was only wet at the bottom end of the bend.
With the car off there was no drip. If I turned the ignition on the line seeped.
The car cranked over a lot to catch and run when started.
There is slack in the rubber line and I was able to pull it down 2" between these photos:
The drip turned to a stream when the car was running and the fuel system was pressurized.
this may be an easy fix as the puncture marks look obvious.
Here's how I fixed it.
I bought a straight 10" or so piece of hard brake line.
I cut with a pipe cutter wheel tool a 2" section (no flares) and de-burred the ends.
I further rounded the ends of the cut pipe with a file (okay I lied a grinding wheel)
The with tool generic hose clamps, inserted the 2" piece into
the ends of the fuel line and clamped the rubber hose ends for a leak free simple fix.
