A sad - but determined, update this time.
Plans of shooting home, paying the tax and hopping into the scim were sadly dashed by a fuel leak that began while parked up in the garage... None of the fuel pipes are visibly bad but after the second fuel leak in less than a year I've lost confidence in the lot and plan to replace them all before it's on the road again.
I'm planning on replacing the nylon hoses too, as at least one has been chopped down in the past, and I can then copy the work of others on the forum and extend them into the engine bay to make the flexi pipes at each end that bit easier.
Looking for pipes and fittings at SSL diesel - believe i'm correct in saying it's 8mm and 6mm OD for feed and return respectively?
also slightly baffled by fittings on the end of the nylon tube - seems like quite a few people don't actually bother, so are they really needed or is just getting the flexi hose nice and tight over the nylon and using a good fuel hose clip enough?
if fittings are recommended - which do i need, I'm finding the SSL diesel site a bit obtuse in this regard - I think I'm right in saying per connection I'll need one of these
, one of these
and maybe some tube supports per connection?
also any recommendations on how much of each pipe to buy? currently house-bound as otherwise i'd measure on the car, but really want to be able to get the bits ordered ASAP so i can get straight on with it as soon as i can (and make sure the car is able to make it to curbs!)
