Fuel lines

Tracing back my brake line to figure out how to replace it and how much work it will be, I noticed another heavily corroded line. It's one of my fuel lines. Looks like one was replaced recently, but not the other. It looks as bad as my crumbling brake lines. Nothing is leaking though.

Looking at the parts diagram one is fuel supply and the other is fuel vapor. So liquid goes down one line and vapor comes back on the other? Just trying to get a handle on what's bound to be my next project after the brakes.

I fabricated the vapor recovery line out of the stock lengths of brake lines avail at a place like NAPA. easy to bend and replicate the original. The fuel line should be stainless and will last indefinitely.

Oh... That explains why one is rusted to the point of dissolving, and the other looks like new. Phew... I thought some moron just replaced one and not the other.

Do you have to remove the gasoline tank to install the vapor line? I couldn't see the fittings from my angle under the truck. Since you built your own, what fittings did you need to use?

No fittings just bent by hand. Just trace the line and it will connect to a rubber hose on each end.
