Re: [DML] Fuel hoses



Do you have the original hoses?

I don't remember if those orange hoses used the same style barbs as the originals, but it is safe to just get some regular high-pressure (fuel injection) hose at the local auto parts store, and some fuel injection clamps.  Cut the old rubber off the barbs, slip the new hose on and use the fuel injection clamps.

Like I said, I don't know if this process will work with the orange hoses.  You would have to see if the barb is the correct size.
