Not really.... they just get brittle over time and eventually they break. You may not notice it until you start moving stuff around but they will break at some point.

^this.

I bet yours might still be brittle but if you don't move em too much, you might be ok. Just keep an eye on things IMO

I haven't noticed a fuel smell but I would love to replace my hoses just to be safe. BUMP!

Will v6 fuel line set up work on a 94 cobra. I had removed the lines on mines and got 1 kinked pretty bad, it may have cracked the nylon hose underneath the rubber outer.

Just had this issue been parked for 6 mnths when started could smell fuel and didn't pay it any mind and drove the car about a day or two later checking the car getting ready to go cruze with the guys. Low and behold a fuel leak on the passenger side rale at the injectors. Replaced the o-rings and all was well. O-rings still seemed good but replaced it anyway.

Best thing to do is rip out that stock fuel setup.

I removed the entire set up and replaced it with a granatelli in tank hanger delete, a external magnafuel quickstar 275 pump, trickflow 100 micron fliter and aeroquip lines and fittings..those little metal lines along the frame are very easy to remove, the tank hanger will cause some frustatration upon removal, and filler neck seal will need replaced...spend a little time and money and youll be able to replace that yucky stock system

Well that sounds totally reasonable for a street car with a leaky hose at the rail....

I think you may have missed the point of this exercise.

MRBIGS, did you use the Russell fittings then do the SS braided lines?

I'm about to start building my car to run in NMRA Factory stock, but we are about to pull the powertrain out to clean the engine compartment up. I want to fix any potentional problems now.

Thanks,

94 GT

I used the russell fittings and fragola lines as mentioned a couple pages back. Works really well, but I kinda wish I had gotten a tighter bend on the rail side at the return outlet so its not in the way so much. But oh well... next time maybe.

A few months ago I started smelling a faint fuel smell around my 94 that i could never pin point or find a leak of any kind. I remembered these threads on here about this and decided to just go for it. I ordered all the parts from Summit Racing including the 30'' Fragola pre made SS lines.

I ordered one line with a 45 and one with a 90 degree bend and could not be happier with the fit.



With the fox valve covers I ran the new lines just like I ran factory rubber lines with one on each side of the filler tube.


I even used the factory fuel line holder that's on the shock tower. I sliced some 1/2'' clear tubing and put it over the SS line to keep it from rubbing on my paint at the shock tower.


The fuel smell went away and the SS lines and blue fittings look great!

Having a little trouble getting the return line fitting 640870 to snap back on to the OEM fuel rail... The fitting slides all the way into the rail neck to where the lip of the fuel rail neck is inside the blue oval hub, but no matter how hand I try, it just will not snap into place.

The feed line went on ok.

Anyone had this issue?
Am I doing something wrong?!

The OEM and 640870 visually look the same, so I have no idea....

Try adding the disconnect tool into the mix when you are installing it. I'll bet the inner spring on the new fitting is really tight and the fuel rail mouth is hitting it, instead of letting the spring come up and over the mouth to snap down behind that lip when things are fully seated. Does that make sense?

It makes perfect sense... thanks a bunch. I also called Russell and they said I need to make sure the spring is centered. Which all makes sense, cuz it's as if im hitting a brick wall where it should just snap in, which probably means the spring isn't centered and isn't going over the lip cuz it's tight. I'll play with it and hopefully I'll get it.

Thanks a bunch for your input.
