Would the quick connect fittings work on the sending unit? Or are there ones that would. I posted in another post about redoing my fuel lines.

Not sure, I can't remember what the connector is like for that, but here is a link to a good article about running braided fuel lines from the pump using some neat compression fittings.

I think you're missing the point of the new specially-made fitting.

No, the new fitting is to connect to the existing hardlines. Fittings to run braided lines from the tank have been around for years.

Finally going to get around to doing this, and will be heading to Summit next week for supplies. One shocker, though, was that nylon braided hose is more expensive than stainless-braided ($39.95 vs. $26.95)? --and yes, same size and length.

Any big plus to one over the other (other than appearance?) One thing that I seem to recall is hearing that braided stainless hose can abrade things it comes in contact with (other lines, for instance)?.

I'll likely pay the extra for the nylon, since it will likely be easier to work with, and I don't have anything else dress-up" under the hood. I'm still curious about the cost delta and benefits of one vs. the other, though.

For anyone that is looking for the high pressure firewall side push on connector. Part number 641303, which is the black one. I contacted about 4 vendors and none of them had any in stock. I had been waiting for one from Summit for about 3 weeks and am now to the point where I am going to be needing it. So at that point I figured I would just try contacting them direct. I did and I must say that the woman that I talked to went through all the trouble and had the people at the factory whip up another fitting and they are going to ship it to me direct.

So, if you are looking for a fitting that they do not have in stock at any vendors I suggest contacting them direct. They are more then willing to help and it will only end up costing a few bucks more.

Can someone post up the step by step install or how to for these fittings with pics when you install yours? that'll be awesome!

I am in a same boat. I ordered the black ones from summit and havent got the last fitting that you mentioned. I will be giving them a call as well.

As much as I love using stainless or pro-lite hoses eventually they all smell like gas. I wanted to find a simple solution and ideally using PTFE hose so I would not have to worry about the gas eroding the rubber lines. I decided to go with these.

Fragola Performance Systems 375024 - Fragola Performance Systems P.T.F.E Hose Assemblies - Overview - SummitRacing.com

They are pre-made 30" braided stainless lines with -6 fittings on both ends. A 45 degree for the rail end and a straight end for the hardline adapter. It saves quite a bit over making the lines myself as well.

All (4) Russell fuel lines fittings and (2) of these hoses make it a $133 project. (Actually $132.70 plus the shipping charge)

For what it's worth, I figure this makes the entire swap about a 15 minute affair.

This is a link to the Fragola pages where they clearly state these lines are designed for nitrous, fuel, oil, or water.

Fragola Performance Systems

I'm going to put the hoses in split loom to keep the abrasion at a minimum, and figure they should last at least as long as the factory ones.... I'll post an update and pictures when the box gets here from Summit.

Here are the parts. You should be able to see the part numbers clearly.



Here's what they look like assembled in some split loom ready to go on the car.

Hey Andy,

Sorry, work has taken over the last few months and a leaking fuel filler neck sidelined me. I'll try to get some up this weekend. My intent was to post the how to with pics but just buried. Shortly

I got the same set he did and posted pics in the other thread. Here's a link to the post. Not a step-by-step but should give you an idea.

They work great. I was still getting some fuel smell after I did it but replacing the vac line to the carbon canister fixed that. You can see how deteriorated it is in the pics. I know the fuel lines were shot though for several reasons so I'm glad I did them. Car's running great now.

Thanks again, 1svtfan, you made things pretty simple with that set.

Ordered mine finally last week since my motor should be coming home soon... Got the fittings and they look great, the lines are on B/O until the 18th. So Late next week I should have mine assembled and ready to go on the car.

Finally I was install the lines but I'm have problem with the 5/16 fitting in the hard line. I had read that is necessary push hard and I did that , but when I grasped and pulled up hard the fitting , the white plastic clip stayed attached in tube and the fitting went out in my hand ...

How I know when the fitting is proper snapped ? And does the white plastic clip have do stay between the two flares in the tube ?

I just finished to pushed very hard the fitting and now with a moderate pull it seems to stay in place ... I’m not sure if it is proper seated ...

Well , it seems that it snapped in place now ... There aren't leaks and fuel pressure is ok . What a pain in the ass these -6AN to 5/16" tube adapters (duck-bill connector) ! The 1/4" one is much better design and much more secure !

I still don't trust in that fitting... If you pull a little hard the line , like I said before , the connector goes out and the white clip stay on the flare of the tube ... But it seems that this is normal ... Maybe I just worry too much ...

Are you talking about the return line not seeming to go on securely? Because I was concerned about that too when I installed mine yesterday. But then I thought about how it was fastened in stock form... which is basically the same as the fuel filter connectors and I've never had or heard of a problem with those popping off.

Yes , I was worried mainly because this type of connectors on stock fuel filter line and OEM fuel lines of others cars , don't need push hard and you hear the "click" when properly installed . But later , with a mirror, I saw that the connector is correctly seated and until now there aren't leaks and everything's fine .
Edit: And I was talking about the feed line (5/16 one) .

Anyway , I found other 5/16 russell connector with the same design of 1/4 line , with threaded cap in the bottom . It's a RUS-644110 (summit part number) . I bought one just for spare and mind tranquility .

Guess I missed this. Whoops. Thanks for posting the link. The pre-made lines are a pretty close fit. It looks like one needs to be just a little shorter than the other to run together all the way back, but for the non-OCD, this looks like a good time/work-saving option.

Wow I wish I would have found this thread sooner. I currently have a turbo kit on my car and this would benefit me great as my downpipe runs direclty underneith my fuel lines. Will someone please get me a list of part#'s that I need to make this happen, down to the tool that I need to removed my old lines? I need to get this changed asap because of the dangerous heat they are exposed to. Thanks in advance,

I personally used 30" line on both sides. the feed side is perfect but the return line is little long. But stick with 30" lines. Buy one 45* line and one 90* line for perfect fit. 90* will also help if you have tall valve covers
