[DML] Re: Leaking fuel line in Distributor



Hi
If these are the original lines then this tells you they need 
changing, i would review all of the lines.

remember they are running at 60 lb+ (twice tyre pressure) and after 
25 years......

An easy jobs at least.
is it worth checking the the website for the fuel line kits? 
possible braided?.
always renew the copper washers, and if they are old replace the 
banjo bolts.
Also check the lines to the tank and the accumulator.

Regards

Steve
