a shocking discovery from uncle ben when working on the raffle rig...the hose from the filter to the engine is $300 from toyota!!! he also found that junkyards will cut that line when pulling the motor :eek:

so do not cut that line unless you have to....save someone else some $ if you go another route.

That the one with gold plating inside? $300 for a fuel line.

Does it have special connectors on each end? It a high pressure line?

we got the line donated. it had come up missing. thanks to the yota yard for that.

it is a high pressure line, just over a foot long. threaded connectors. but still....$300!!! i make hi pressure lines all day long for 1/10th that...i just don't have metric fittings.

Holy crap! I was having a hell of a time getting the banjo bolts off mine a while back, considered cutting the lines to get it out of the truck, I am so glad I didn't.

FWIW, Those crimp type hoses can be "re-fabricated" by cutting off the crimp shell and rubber hose, then reuse the crimp barb ends w/ 100PSI rated EFI hose and good quality hose clamps.

Not as purty as stock, but effective.

Nuke -
Ever used Struble Fluid Power in Englewood (IIRC)? Great stuff, better prices. Lotsa strange fittings.
