    Morning all, anyone know what a new fuel line goes for on an 85 Jimmy, with a 305? From the Carb back to the nearest junction. I just noticed my is all twisted right as it leaves the carb. Also, is it a simple yank the old one, put new one in? Or is it more involved?

    Is this the one that is attached to the fuel filter and goes down to the pump? I just paid shy of $30 for mine because it bent (I tweaked it getting the freaking filter out that was beyond stuck... argh!) If it's the same one you can probably expect to pay about the same give or take $5 bucks... I replaced it myself so if I can do it you can do it.. took me longer then it should due to the line was not willing to come free....

    Words of advice if its still stuck...remove the lower connection from the fuel pump first, use flare wrnches (the correct tool) and use a 1" open end on the carb filter housing.

    Usually disconnecting the lower fitting allows the upper part enough movement to break free before it starts to twist.

    Short, sharp blows with a hammer on the flare wrench will help to free it up as well.
