Corroded Fuel Line...!

Took my 86 '44 in to have traking done yesterday and noticed fuel dripping from under the driver side wheel arch. Bit worrying so pulled the wheel off today and the plastic cover. Found the fuel line from the tank leaking where one of the brackets holds the brake line, fuel line apart. Fitted a jubilee clip and plastic pipe around the leak. Stopped the leak for now. On closer inspection the whole line is badly corroded so I'm looking at having to replace the entire line. I've read in one of my Dads Porsche World mags that it costs around 280 pounds and involves removing part of the rear suspension system to change the line. Any ideas on this? I will definately change the line, and although I've heard of braided hose replacements, I would rather use a solid, preferably original fuel pipe. from the tank to the fuel rail.

Hmm, if it's 280 pounds, it's proly cheaper to buy a few feet of fuel line, and a small bender and make your own, by the time a few mistakes are made, and you finish up, it's probably cheaper and it would be done before a new one would come in from a supplier. That's my opinion, doesn't make it right =)

I think you might be right.... Only worries me cos it's on the pressure side of the pump, but for now good quality flex pipe will have to do. Cheers.
