Default cold start fuel line leaking - B230

replacing hG on a friends car. Car is almost back together. Cold start fuel line is leaking at the line/connection spot. How do you fix this? cut and slip on after heating it up or...


Thanks
Jack

Are you sure it’s not leaking where it 'tees' off? Looks like it’s bent.

You’re probably just blind. Anyway I’m not sure if it’s metal underneath that or if it’s just press fit rubber. Someone knows. But I don’t and neither do you.

If it's leaking at the hose you can cut off the nylon line and replace with 1/4" fuel hose. Also get the correct fuel line clamps.

Under the nylon line is a metal barbed fitting.

I accidentally tore mine off. After many searching I found one of these options to fit. Sorry I don't remember which one it is. It is from McMaster-Carr. It was like 14.00 with shipping.

Good as new! I put the barb and the tubing in boiling water to soften it.

If that is your problem, which it might not be. Good luck!

Boiling water may work. Or a heat gun. Probably don't wanna use a torch...

Lots of threads on repairing kjet fuel lines-same.

If the plastic hose is in good shape and it is just leaking from under it. I just put a hose clamp on there and that usually takes care of the problem. Otherwise it becomes a replace the plastic hose with the above processes.
