    You have to get a new one:D

    It should have another fitting somewhere near the frame or so has to have a flex line in it some where cause the motor is rubber mounted so it has to be also. Just find where the connection is and disconnect it and either get a new one made or Checker might have a new one or the dealer. Hose and clamps will not work for long unless it built for it.

    Zone might its only about a foot or so long at least the one is my van was. Climb under and pull it out should connect below the firewall near the frame, may have heat sheild on it above the exhaust.

    If it wans't cracked you can usually bend them to fit but you cant fix the crack.

    Don't know any part number, on my van the lines went around the distributer then to a bracket that bolted to one of the bolts in the head then it turned into flex lines then attached to hard lines that ran back tho the fuel tank. I would just disconnect the lines from the TBI and then the hard lines and the bracket from the head. If my memory is correct they are two different sizes the smaller should be the return.
