Default Fuel Line Repair

1997 SL2 120K-ish

Discovered that something seems to have chewed on the fuel line. Searching the forums turned up http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=232637 in which sedativechunk talked about installing a fuel line union for a small damaged area of line. TheBuild had previously posted asking about such a part, and posted a link to one that is 8 mm.

The question is, is 8 mm the correct size? And if so is it possible to use that part for the damage seen in the attached picture? Or is there some other way to patch this piece of line? Visual inspection of the lines did not turn up any other damaged areas and fuel was only seen to be leaking from this one area.

Well I cut the damaged piece out - it's too long for a union. So I got a piece of fuel line and some barbed fittings. Now the question is - are the fittings supposed to go all the way in (ie, to the middle, where the stop is)?

Yes, push them on as far as they will go. Warm the lines up with a heat-gun or hair-drier or by dipping the ends in water that has recently been boiled.

Perfect, thank you. Should the line be clamped at all, or will the fact that the line is semi-rigid be enough to hold it?
