Hello Again!

So here i am trying to get my 86 GT Fiero started, ........

So whats a low cost way of repairing or replacing the return fuel line.

The metal tube that connects to the tank return hose near the filter is Rusted out and leaking . Both metal tubes on the fuel filter are rusty but arent leaking yet. Every metal tube should be changed or repaired. The rubber lines going up to the engine ... IDK???

Do they still sell these lines? I guess I'll just run new fuel hose from A to B with the old connector ends? or Does anybody sell the fuel line ends so I can connect New Fuel hoses to them??

How do you recommend I go about this??
Thanks in Advance!!

The Fiero Store has braided stainless lines. I replaced mine with these braided lines when they rusted through.

I just installed those on my car. Fuel feed and return lines. Fit just like factory.

Do a nice thorough job and replace both (including the filter) and the rubber hoses and you'll be good for a long time.

The connection between the braided hose and the hard lines from the fuel rail are easy to get to if you remove the battery. Don't forget to buy the O-rings which are not included with the fuel lines.

Well, that's the recommended thing.

You might be able to find a set of good lines on a car in a junkyard or that someone is parting out. But good luck. Next best thing would see if NAPA or some place can make a set, or get bending and flaring tool s, and make some yourself.

I don't think anyone actually has pre-made kits.

Yup, make your own and/or use fuel injection rubber lines if you have issues with running metal lines.
