I used my Milwaukee sawzall. I had just enough room to cut it after removing the allen screw that secured the clamp in back that held the line secure.

Looking back, I realized I could have left the old steel fuel line assembly in place and bypass it if I just snipped off the old rubber fuel lines on the old fittings and reused the 19mm connectors with new fuel injection hose with hose clamps and a "T" from the auto parts store.

Small pipe cutter worked for me as well. Took a while though and access was not best.

I was able to cut the hardline with a hacksaw blade. It took a while but it worked.
I thought my copper pipe cutter would not fit back there where the hardline is.

I cut the front hoses that connect to the fuel rails about half way on each side. I was able to pull the one-half hard line and shorter hoses under the inlet manifold and out near the fire wall.

I still haven't figure out how to remove the J-hose. I may need a stubby 17-mm wrench. The standard 17-mm does not fit because of its length.
The fitting at the J-hose/support bracket is something I haven't seen before. I don't know how it comes apart.
I may have to leave the J-hose in place. It seems to be in good shape. My preference would have been to replace it now.
I would appreciate any advice on how to remove the J-hose.
Thank you
RG

update: I used a hacksaw blade to cut the hard line. It took about 15 minutes. I had to reinstall the pipe holder so that the pipe would stay put.
The holder/bracket has a 4-mm allen head screw. It was a pain to figure out what it was, as it faces the firewall.

I also cut the two hoses going to the rails, up front just behind the alternator. I made the cut about the middle point of the hoses. This allow removal under the inlet manifold and pulling towards the fire-wall.

I have not been able to figure out how to remove the J-hose. It seems to screw onto a section of pipe attached to a bracket at the forward edge of the engine on the driver's side. I have used a mirror to locate the hose and connections. I can't tell if the pipe is part of the bracket. Does anyone have experience with this?
I also noticed that a regular wrench will not fit back there. I will have to get a stubby wrench. 17-mm & 19-mm?

Thank you for any advice you can provide.

PS: Nolift: the clamp you showed was not available at the autoparts. I found it at Home Depot. Thank you for your help!

I contacted Len as suggested herein. Got the hoses and installed the 2 larger ones (front of rails and from pressure regulator to damper) except the J-hose.
I followed Len's guide on where to cut the hardline and hoses. Cutting the hardline took a while. I used a hacksaw blade. I couldn't fit a copper pipe cutter back there near the firewall.

The one half hardline came out from under the manifold and out by the firewall.
There is a plastic bracket holding the hardline with a 4-mm allen bolt near the firewall. This was a pain, as I had no idea of the type of bolt and you cannot see it. I used a mirror but still could not see it.

I was not able to figure out how the J-hose comes out.
The fitting between the J-hose and the return line appears to be attached to a bracket on the engine near the fire-wall.
I may have to leave the old J-hose in place until someday when the engine comes out for a clutch or reseal.
I would appreciate any advice you guys can provide.

The clamp no-lift suggested was available at home depot.
Thank you for all the advice

Len,
I didn't realized you posted the photos about the J-hose.
I am having a difficult time with that but the photos help. I have to get a stubby wrench to get back there.
That fitting is something I have never seen before. I will let you know how it goes.
I appreciate your help!

Using a small mirror when working on the forward side of the engine is helpful.

Have purchased Len's hoses so I'll be replacing mine shortly. Haven't seen anything saying just where to cut the hard line for removal. Where's the best place to make the cut?

This will allow removal and still remain serviceable for re-Hosing......



Will post a photo of a complete Tee assembly re-made with a longer Inlet Hose from the Filter shortly.
