95 yj fuel line leak

i have 95 YJ, 4cyl, that has developed a gas leak in the plastic line between the steel fuel line from the tank to the fuel injector railing. I am having dificullty finding these plastic connecting lines. any suggestions to where i can find them would be much appreciated.

Is there another alternative such as replacing the plastic lines with traditional rubber fuel hose with hose clamps or is there to much pressure for this type of method?

Fuel injector hose should be good to 225 psi. Fuel pressure, from what I've seen on here, should vary b/w 15 and 45. It should work.

Won't work !!! Trust me, Reg. Fuel line and hose clamps will work for 15 psi or so,
NOT 30 to 65.
Think about it, if it would work, don't you think the Factory would have used it
and saved Thousands of Thousands of Dollars? It WON'T work, that's why they use
FI Hose and Pressure Fittings.

I've repaired leaking plastic lines with fuel injection hose, 3/8" or 5/16", and high pressure fuel hose clamps. the hp clamp are a full metal band with a small nut and bolt to tighten. Any real Auto Parts store should stock them. I'll post part numbers tomorrow. Naother option is to double clamp with screw type clamps. Which I some times also do with the hp clamps.

I did mine with clamps and it is working fine. Cut the ends of the steel lines cleanly with a tube cutter. Be sure to use hose rated for the pressure and the same goes for the clamps.

The lip in the line is referred to as a "barb" and is designed to work in conjunction with a clamp. I wouldn't cut the hose, but I'll leave that up to you.

I just replaced my fuel filter and am encountering a leak. I have not crawled up under there yet, but I bet it's those rubber hoses at the filter. Anybody have a part number for them? Or even better, a cheap supplier for the hoses?

Thanks

Found the part numbers:

Engine side (straight) HFV00516AB

Tank side (90 degree bend) 53004014


Now all I need is a cheap supplier. Rear hose is about $22 at dealer, I'm sure my local dealer will want more.

The 90 degree shaped hose at the filter is in bad shape. Is there a cheaper way to replace it instead of the $23 (or more) pre-fab hose at the dealer?

Several options have been talked about on different forums.....I bit the bullet and paid $30 at my local dealer.
