1995 Fuel Rails install on my 1991 - What fuel line?

I recently put a set of '95 rails on my '91 for the additional fuel flow potential and I'm finding that due to the different position and angle of the fuel inlet on the '95 rails, my stock '91 fuel line won't fit (the oil fill tube is right in the way). I tried to bend my stock tube with a cheapo line bender but just kinked it.

What is the proper/correct way to get fuel from the stock line down next to the engine, up to the '95 rails?

On the '87-'93 cars we have a ~2' long hard fuel line that connects down next to the engine and to the rail. I think '94 and up have one long line all the way from the tank - without the hard line... so I need to find something that will work with my '91.

Right now I have a set of the male spring loaded ends that plug into both the stock line and the '95 rail w/ barbed fittings for fuel hose. I ordered a couple feet of stainless braided fuel line and some good fuel line specific hose clamps but I'm not sure if using clamps will be acceptable - especially if I take it to the track.

Does anybody have any suggestions on the right way to connect the stock '91 lines to the '95 rails?? Does anyone make this flexible line or the correct bends (w/ stock spring lock ends)?

THANKS!

I am doing something similar.. I am converting my 85 to EFI and I am using the 95 rails.. I am going to use the russell adapters on the rails that convert it to -8 and -6 hose and run push lock hose to the tank...

The '95 used soft nylon lines to connect between the rails and the hard lines on the chassis. They're actually prone to failure and there's a sticky about it in the 94/95 section.

Nothing wrong with hoses and clamps. But if the thought makes you uncomfortable slosvo's suggestion is the way to go. You can get AN adapters for both ends. By the way an AN fitting is a fancy clamp.

Yea, the 94 and 95's have different lines than the pre-94 cars. I ended up just getting a set of the stock style ends w/ barbed fittings on them (from RockAuto.com) and put braided line on them and clamped them with some fancy high pressure hose clamps. No problems yet.
