Draco A50G -

If this is your 911, here is a FYI for you and/or others with this same model. Someone has repaired the Fuel Line from the Filter with an incorrect (too long) crimp sleeve.

So long that it has crushed the hose where the 120 deg fitting has a bump. This bump is meant to retain the hose on the fitting under high fuel pressure.

The crimp sleeve must be short enough to NOT crush the hose at this point.

I will look for a photo to show the inevitable results.

Just a FYI for anyone interested.
