Re: [DML] Leaking fuel line in Distributor

I had precisely this experience with my own car when I bought it. It's 
the reason I put effort into having our own fuel hose sets made. It 
worried me that on a fuel system running at 5 bar (75psi ish), if you 
can cause a leak just by moving the hoses about a bit, they can't be 
very safe after 25 years! Ours are a shiny black high pressure 
thermoplastic with new swaged ends and come with all new bolts and 
washers. One car with a set is the one featured on the Explodaview poster.
