Default fuel pressure and hose size

What is the fuel pressure for a 1999 ram 1500 v8 5.9L 360 and the inside diameter of the fuel hose?

3/8ths line, (not sure if that is ID, or OD) Should be around 49PSI at idle.

Welcome to DF! Cruise on down to the second gen ram section. LOTS of knowledgeable folks there.

Default 99 doge ram 1500 5.9 fuel line

Is the fuel line on a 99 dodge ram 1500 sport 5.9L the 3/8 silver metal line that runs down the drivers side of the frame?

Trace it starting from the tank. I do believe it is flexible line, to metal line, back to flexible, and then the quick-connect at the fuel rail.

3/8" line, should be 48-50 psi. Not sure what the materials are though at what locations.

The line starts from somewhere on the tank, but is in between the frameand the tank and cant get to it. All I can find is two metal lines one 3/8 one much smaller. I'mtrying to put an in line fuel filter on.
