Default Which fuel line should i get?


Hi,
I torn my intake fuel line when dismantling the engine so i need a new one. Anybody knows for sure which one i need? ( i have a manual '79 euro spec):
Is it the 928 110 501 00 or 928 110 501 02?
Thanks in advance!

Did you break the fuel feed line or the return line? #12 is the feed line, #13 is the return line...The feed line on my '83 K-jet car does not make a 90* bend in the body connection end as shown in the diagram.

This one, the fuel feed:


Here are the detail pics of the situation, searching for a replacement in both the States and the Netherlands. Not easy. Not sure if i could bend it back.

I'm sure a Pirtek or local equivalent could make you a line copying you old damaged one. They've done it for people in the past with other fuel hard lines.

Absolutely, but making the bends to make the line fit in both sides perfectly is a challenge. But yes, Pirtek made my fuel hardlines at the fuel filter and accumulator. Very nice work?

Default Time to call 'The Plumber'

I kinked the same fuel line in the same place, so I think I got the last one 928Intl. had...LOL The fuel line I got from 928Intl had a 90* bend at the flex line end ( see pic #1) I cut off the straight end that I needed from my damaged line and spliced it to the one I got from 928Intl. I made the splice where the clamp holds the line to the intake tube...I used a 2" piece of stainless steel tube to sleeve the splice and 57% silver solder to solder it all together...NO LEAKS when running 5.5 bar (79Psi) system pressure!!
I still have the curved end I cut off...( See Pisc #2 & 3) If you can't get a complete fuel line, maybe you can do what I did. If you want to try my kind of fix, PM me and I'll cut off the male coupling and drop the tube in the mail to you..

928 fuel line on top,and My kinked line, still attached to the car. I had to cut the 928Intl line and splice it to mine..


the end I cut off..I left enough straight tubing so it would be 'useful if needed' elsewhere..


If the flair end is the same as the F.D. end, maybe you can splice it in ...I'll cut off the male nut with my Dremel & mail it out to you...

In critical cases it's hardly impossible to form and flare these sections from new tubing. I'd hesitate to recommend thin-wall stainless process tubing for this only because getting the flares right without cracking is a challenge. I'd have to shop some for the CuNiFer (copper-steel-nickel) tubing in that size (10 and 12mm it appears, confirm with measurement), but that would be perhaps the best instant choice if it's available. It bends easily with readily-available hand-held DOM tubing benders, and bubble-flares pretty easily without cracking. No need for additional plating for corrosion protection with that -- polish and clear-coat if you want. Or start with galvanized steel fuel line tubing, and have it replated in original CAD after it's all formed up and ready.

Is there enough demand for that line to tool up a little and make some? Was casually looking at the 10mm cunifer tubing. at $1-2.50 per foot depending on how it's purchased. Have the bender. Probably need to invest in a better (correct) bubble flaring tool ($200-400). Also need to ID the two fittings. How long is that line section?

For those maybe a little less picky, better POLAPS may have something usable (zinc-galvanized) for the tubing. Reuse existing fittings. Then work on the flares.
