Fuel Line leak at unfortunate spot...
 
Hey guys, Im a new stang owner.

I previously came from RX8 club so I know how the forums works
(search before you post I know that protocol)

I did search extensively on google and this forum using the advanced search thing

So long story short, my friend wanted to help me change my clutch and he accidentally use the jack to jack the car at the wrong spot, the fuel line spot with the fuel filter underneath the driver side of the car

I immediately noticed after I started to smell gas

I am trying to find replacement parts for this but I have no luck

I know the big cylinder thing is the filter and the hose and the thing connecting the hose to the filter is unknown to me.

Please help :|
(And if anybody could give me any advice as to how to fix this problem would be aprreciated as well)

Do you have a picture of the line? Maybe if you check a salvage yard you can come up with the parts. I'm guessing you will end up replacing the entire fuel line from the tank forwards. Going to be a pain.

Yes sir I do have pictures

Ill edit them into the original post

I can't even find a part # for it. I would try and see if somebody who went with a bigger fuel system upgraded that section and has it for sale.

Go to s197forum.com, the username is Jeremy@s&hperformance, he is the fuel guru he sells upgrades but would clearly be able to help you out.

That part number is only $97 at tousleyfordparts.com, but I can't find a part number for the other side of the fuel filter.

F37Z-9J279-A
F37Z-9J279-B
F37Z-9J279-C

I can't seem to find details on which one is which :icon_sad:

amalay 05-23-2013 03:38 PM

Wait I think the letters mean

A for brakes
B for all brakes
C for ??? according to tousleyfordparts it says B is superceded by C

You need both the forward and aft lines right? I would call tousley ford and make sure you get the right parts. B is superceded by C, but it has nothing to do with the brakes.

I think i'm going to try buy some nylon fuel lines and find the same measurement fuel line connector and try to heat up the tubing to fit onto the metal tubing

Do you think this is safe? Using a heat gun on the fuel line whilst still on the car that is

I'm sure it is, but I'm not sure i'd trust it.

I'm 90% sure the letter is the revision. Therefore you want to go with the newest, C.

Hit an Orileys.. they sell a kit specifically made for splicing into the fuel line that replaces the connector. Sure other autoparts stores do as well.

amalay 05-24-2013 03:16 PM

I bought a kit! but im having trouble taking the plastic hose off from the metal tubing, I have the urge to use a heat gun on it but then again my brain is telling me my face is gunna be blown away....

I might just play it safe and look up how to disconnect the fuel line from the fuel rail in the bonnet and remove the hose while it is off the car but I have a big feeling it will be a PITA
