RE: [DML] Fuel Injection Hoses



Yes, I was talking about the expen$ive SS lines from Hervey. They are a nice 
product, but they do co$$t, and that may not be in your budget for this 
project.

We never had to replace the inner lines ourselves. My local auto parts store 
did this for us. They may have heated the line ends of the inner lines with 
a heat gun, in boiling water, hot sand, hot oil, or something similar to 
soften and expand them before pushing them over the barbs. I really don't 
know what they did. We just brought our old lines in, the guy went in the 
back room, and came out again sometime later with a new core in the hose. He 
did have to slit the end of the outer rubber to get access to the barbs, so 
we used small black cable ties right at the very end of the black outer 
sheath to keep it neat afterwards.

The repair was good. The lines repaired this way never leaked again, and 
they only charged something around $10 per line. But after one after another 
of these lines leaked, instead of repairing them one by one as they failed 
we decided to repalce them all with the SS lines so that we would not have 
to worry about which line would leak next, and so the under-hood appearance 
would be improved.

You will have to find a GOOD auto parts store. Autozone, Pep Boys, and the 
like are not likely to be able to do this. We went to a place called 
"Foreign Auto Parts" that specialized mostly in import car parts.
