Here's what has happened: My fuel pump went out, I've changed it and the truck works again. Yay! Now for the problem. The OEM line that connects to the pressure regulator broke off when I was uninstalling it from the old pump.
The first thing I did was go out and buy a fuel line repair kit from NAPA auto parts; a 3/8" line. (Part: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/RNB-800-059/
This fit the fuel pump great... But then when I went to install the metal fitting to attach the old hose to the new hose, it was way too big! (the hose must be 5/16")
So I figured I ****ed up, went to the store and bought another one that was 5/16" (no link to this part). This installed onto my hose great, but the 90 degree fitting did not fit my fuel pump!
So I already tried to take the metal connector that fits my nylon fuel line and clamp the bigger 3/8 fuel line (the one that fits my fuel pump) to it. But with the smallest clamps I could find at the auto stores, it will not clamp it secure enough to prevent a leak.
So I need some ideas.
Do they make a metal connector that goes from 5/16" to 3/8"?
Does someone sell a kit that has a 3/8" connection that my pump needs, but has a 5/16 hose versus a 3/8 hose?
Could I fit the larger 3/8 hose onto the metal fuel line down the line a few inches? (removing my old rubber hose completely)
Should I just go buy the entire new OEM line?? How much would that be?
Should I just blow up my truck?
Thank you very much guys. I appreciate it!
