Fuel lines

Hey guys, I was just looking into replacing my fuel lines (lines to fuel rail) and started to notice that my lines come from the d/s and go into pressed fittings into hard lines. They do not come from the p/s fender like so many 944, Whats the deal with that? Also how hard is it to replace these lines, How do I remove the old lines? They dont look like they unbolt. Thanx for the help, I just dont feel like screwing with it and figure some one here has done it before

The early cars (and I believe the 924s models) ran the fuel lines along the belly, up the firewall and over from about the brake booster area (driver's side) around the back of the engine to the fuel rail. Why on earth they changed the design in the later 944s to run it directly above the exhaust headers is a mystery. I like the early setup WAY better personally.

Anyway, I believe the early lines have to be cut at a hard line junction and spliced onto - not a job for the amateur or faint of heart. I'd either pay someone or depressurize the fuel rail and get cutters and a flaring tool.

BTDT.....Yes the lines are a PITA to replace due to space at the rubber to steel connections. You have to cut the old line off w/o cutting into the hard line. This is hard as space is tight and hard to get a tool in to cut, but doable. The steel lines must be released from the holding clips so you can move the lines as you work. The new line then slide on and new clamps are used. You can get the lines from Travis on the list.

Also try to drain the fuel out the tank end of the lines first so when you remove the old ones you have less spillage around the bellhousing otherwise the gas will poor out when you remove the line.

Travis only has fuel line kits for the '85.5+ cars at the moment.
