> I've been restoring a model 96=20 1968, one of the last two strokers or one of the first V4s ? Anyway, the fuel line is basically the same for both, but there's one = with a nut connection and one with a rubber hose connection to the tank. = If you have the first you will have to cut the fuel line to get it out > and I was ready to take it to the paint shop, > but I discovered a leak in the fuel line near the firewall. I only = see one > coupling, and that's where it hooks to the fuel tank. I searched all = my > literature and was unable to find a routing diagram or any info on how = far > forward of the firewall I can find a coupling. =20 There is none... see section 2:14 of the (1972) workshop manual. There = is only one rubber hose/nut from the tank to the steel fuel line under = the back seat and a piece of rubber hose from the front of the fuel line = to the fuel pump on the left side of the (V4) engine.=20 > I really don't want to pull > the engine again. Does anyone have any info or advice on this? My workshop manual says you can only replace the fuel line if the engine = is out.=20 That is when I did it and I think that makes sense as the fuel line is = clamped to the floor under the engine and I see no way you can pull it = out to the front as the engine mounts and the sump are in the way. Your quickest fix would be to cut the steel fuel line at the leak, slide = a piece of rubber fuel hose over the cut and clamp the hose with two = hose clamps. There should be a cone shaped rubber grommet where the fuel line goes = through the firewall.
