Need fuel filter molded hose

95 Jeep Wrangler Sahara 4.0L engine. The design of the fuel filter mount is such that it uses a molded right angle hose on the input side. I was never able to find one so I have reused the original one that is now 17 years old and in need of replacement. I am sure the dealer has it for big bucks.. Does anyone have a source for this fuel line hose OR a modification that would negate the need for it? Also the rock shield that hooks to the frame under the filter is a pain in the rear. The bolts are rusted and I can no longer remove it. The design is such that all it does is collect dirt that promotes more rot and rust even of the filter itself. Any recommendations there as well?

your local auto parts store should have pre-molded heater/fuel line. just cut to size.

This hose is a right angle fuel line hose and not carried by auto parts stores.

I used hose for fuel injection and moved things to reduce the angle. standard fuel hose is not rated for fuel injection. As for the fuel filter cover, chisel off, redrill holes, clean and paint cover.

Thanx Flatline.. I will start by chiseling off the cover to get better view to move stuff around and in parallel find some Fuel injection hose and proper clamps although I do have some fuel injection type clamps that may work.

Dealer part.. 23 bucks. I did not order. First gonna chisel off the rock shield and she how much flexibility I have to re-shape the input solid fuel line. I think the input is 5/16 and the output line is 1/4 inch. I checked auto zone and they have Goodyear SAE 30 R7 fuel injection hose which is really not good enough. You need SAE 30 R9 to be safe. Its the hose with the blue lining.. Now all I need to do is find some.... R7 is for lower pressure applications like carburetor or small engines.

I may go to dealership and buy one if it's only $23. Usually I try to avoid the dealership. Not sure but I think the hose size 3/8 and 5/16

I am on my way to the dealer tomorrow to order it and 2 clamps. I got the rusted out rock guard off this evening and the in put side of the molded hose leaks if you just touch it. I removed the coolant system type clamp and replaced it with one of my fuel injection clamps. The hose is on borrowed time and needs to be replaced. The output side is straight hose and readily available at the auto parts store. Will change that at the same time.

Hose purchased and installed. I went with the fuel injection clamps I had on hand and did not pay the 5 bucks a piece for the dealer ones. I also changed the straight output hose with a 2.5 inch piece of SAE 30R9 sold in an 18" length on shelf at AutoZone. It was the Goodyear hose with the blue liner.
