88 Carrera Fuel line

I've bunged up the fitting at the exit of the fuel filter. Looks like I need 930-110-595-05.
The line has a hard portion with a 90 degree bend under the intake manifold.

Looks like is it would be difficult to maneuver the line in, can anyone verify, or make any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your help!

You can start here:
Notorious Carrera 3.2L rear fuel line leak revisited (long)

There are tons of posts on this. That line is expensive, so some people reach out to BoxsterGT to have him make a line for them out of braided stainless steel, making it easier to snake the lines through.

OK, got the fuel line mounting points and ends loose.

What's the best way to maneuver the fuel line out? To the right? Rotate it around to the left?

Really don't want to take the intake off.

Thanks!!

Oh go ahead and remove the manifold, the gaskets and spacers probably need to be replaced anyway. Then you can clean it up. And replace the thermostat O ring and the oil breather gasket and the sender while you are in there. There is a long slippery slope awaiting you.

What ever you do, DO NOT buy a factory replacement line. As other have suggested, have custom lines made using your factory fittings. I cant remember who did mine years ago, but I learned the hard way.

My stock lines failed and almost burned my car up. Ordered new factory lines and had them installed (for like $300). Within a month, they failed too. Looking at the factory stickers on the line they were made in '87! After a few heat cycles in my Carrera, they started cracking and drying up (for a lack of a better example).

Mine are now the braided SS type. If using this type, make sure to use the factory plastic spring like coil that goes over the line to prevent the SS braiding from rubbing and damaging other parts of the engine it may touch.

BoxsterGT-send you an e-mail but it bounced back. I e-mailed you and you replied a couple days ago. Are you out there?

Here is the Braided SS version that I offer...........



This "Soft" Hose set saves a few hours of replacement time as the original can be cut out to clear the Intake manifolds. It's still a pain to do, but time is money.

My 1988 Carrera coupe has a similar problem. The hose connecting to the driver's side rail is leaking. I am not driving the car. I started removing the heater fan and the air filter housing.
I am concerned about removing and re-installing the passenger side intake manifold, about being able to align the gaskets and spacers to bolt it back up. Is there a description of how to do this repair properly without damaging anything?
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Raoul -

Happy to help. If you email me I will send info of what I offer for my "soft" set.
It allows you to cut out the Main Tee and run my E-85 rated hoses through to the fuel rails.

Len, in the photo, the support bracket appears to be missing from the new hoses near the tee.
Would the replacement have enough length next to the tee for the support?
What would keep the hoses from bouncing if no support?
Thank you
RG

Len is the man! I am running a full set of his lines and they are better than OEM.

Raulg- I secured mine with a clamp like this. Thumbs up to Len for a great solution!

No Lift, Were you able to "fish" the hose under the inlet manifolds?
I am waiting to hear from Len.
I am having difficulty in finding the connection to the return line, "J-hose"?
I would appreciate any advice
Thank you

raulg-

No problem fishing the line under the intake manifold area. Len will send you a picture of where to cut the old one to get it out which is still a tight squeeze.

Am pretty sure that Len can supply the J hose too. Not sure what you mean be finding the connection, I didn't replace mine. I did the T-line only.

Len spend his time between two places, sometimes it take him a day or two to respond, but don't worry, he'll hook you up with what you need. You'll be back on the road soon.

Good luck!

No Lift - The only hose leaking is the one connecting to the driver's side fuel rail, near the distributor.
I thought it would be a good idea to replace all the fuel hoses because they are almost 30 years old.
I did find the location of the J-hose, however I haven't figure out how to take it out.
I was able to loosen the other hoses/fittings but haven't taken them out until I get the new hoses from Len.
What did you use to cut the hard line?
Perhaps a copper pipe cutter from Home Depot?
Thank you for your advice,
Raulg

raulg-

I didn't replace my J hose, so am sorry that I can't help much with that. Hopefully someone else will offer guidance.

I thought about a little pipe cutter too, but I didn't think there would be room to spin it around the line to cut it.

I used a hacksaw blade with tape wrapped around to make a handle, was able to get maybe 2" strokes to cut the line. I didn't have a sharp blade so it took awhile, but it worked OK.

Good luck!
