    Ok so I just finished changing the fuel filter on my 88 k-5 and I turn the key to prime the pump only to find out that a fuel line has a hole in it now. :mad:

    The hole is about halfway between where the filter is located and the gas tank. Its right where three lines are clamped together.

    So does anyone know where I can get a pre bent line from? :ears: I need to get this truck rolling soon. I already checked the LMC website and it appears that they only sell fuel line for carb'd trucks(73-86) not TBI(87-91)

    Thanks- Ryan

    Just cut the bad portion out and install a flare fitting then flare the line. Do this to both lines after it has been cut then use a union to connect them back together.
