88 2.5 5 speed...just to introduce the jeep. I have been noticing a fuel smell lately and when is looked at the tank one of the lines looked rotten. Well, tonight after filling up I noticed it started dripping. I tried tightening the screw on the clasp, drove around the block, still dripping.
My question is what line is this? Return line? Fuel line? It's the first hose you see when you look between the tub and fender. My Haynes manual doesn't offer much help...at least that I can find.
I've actually read contradicting tank sizes. I've read there is a stopper they put in there to make a 20 into a 15 gallon size. All the websites only show hoses for a 20..,should I just assume I have a 20? I've never put in anywhere close to 20 gallons when filling up. Also, is there anything else I will need to get besides hoses? Seals for tank?
The stock tank is a 20 gallon tank with an extended fill tube that goes into the tank deeper, thus not allowing you to use the top 5 gallons. If you are replacing the lines, you will have to drop the tank. If you drop the tank, you might as well remove the extended fill tube and get access to the extra 5 gallons. There are plenty of articles that explain what to do to remove the extended fill tube.
