How did you attach your fuel lines at the engine, for your engine swap? I used mini hose clamps, but Im worried because there was only about 3/4 of an inch of metal tubeing to slide the ruber fuel line on. Is this going to pop off? No, I cant slide the hose on further,it hits a flange or what ever you call it.

Engine is a 3800 SC II

Get the quick connect fittings that come stock on the GP. Use 2 small hose clamps per fitting amd u will not have an issue. U can buy these fittings from the parts store also.

I "grooved" about an inch of the metal line ,using a "tubing cutter" to just put 5 or 6 "grooves" ( just deep enough for the rubber hose to "Grip" onto), then really tightened GOOD Quality small strap clamps right over where the grooves are. make sure you use "Fuel Injection HOSE", not regular fuel line.
