Stop!!!!!!! Do a timing belt NOW. 10 years is way past due. It is a matter of when not if it is going to fail.

Ben,
If you don't know the history of the fuel lines in the engine bay, I suggest you replace them asap. The two over the exhaust manifold have charbroiled too many 944's. They may look OK outside, but they deteriorate from the inside. There us also a small one on the fuel rail.

Have fun with the project, you and you son will love the car!

Ok thank you. Can I just replace the rubber portion with bulk fuel injection hose?

Unfortunately, both fuel lines are hard from the tank area to the right front wheel well. The easiest way is to take the liner off and cut the hard lines, then I used a compression fitting the fit the rubber line. You may be able to take the damper line to a hyd hose shop and have them use the fitting with new hose. I just bought a kit online that had everything needed. Should cost ~$100 for the press and return line. The little one on the fuel rail has a unique fitting as well...another 100 ish.
Sorry for the unwelcome news.

Love the wheels...will look nice on the white

Timing belt is done along with cam box gasket.. Still need to look at the fuel line but in due time.. Currently not driving the car.. He took the fenders and bumpers off and sanded it and today I showed him how to prime. So all the sanded parts are epoxy primed now to do body work..
