RE: [DML] Fuel Injection Hoses


Inside the rubber lines is a hard, tough teflon-like inner hose that is heat 
shrunk over the barbs of the hose ends. The outer rubber doesn't do much 
except provide protection for this inner line and make the top of the motor 
look ugly.  A good auto parts store can sometimes fix the hoses you have 
very economically by replacing the inner hoses. The problem is that in the 
process they have to partially slit the outer rubber hoses and the finished 
product usually doesn't look very good.

John Hervey's SS braided lines are a very nice product and I recommend them. 
If you buy his, or someone elses braided lines, just be sure to cover them 
with clear plastic tubing ANYWHERE they touch ANYTHING. SS braided hoses are 
like mini-hacksaws as they vibrate against nearby parts and will slice 
through just about anything eventually.
