Default Injector return fuel line

I pulled my 6.2 to swap out some gaskets, freeze plugs and hoses. The only 1/8" fuel line I can find is the clear lawn and garden variety. Will that be OK?

No. That won't work (for long, anyway).

A complete return line kit from Kennedy (or perhaps other TDP vendors) is $25. The kit is an injector service kit and includes all the lines, end plugs, injector coppers and air cleaner gasket, IIRC. If you want only the hose, contact him. I don't know if he sells it separately, but might.

I think I would look up a diesel shop in the phone book and give them a visit. I expect that they would have a spool of it and could sell you what you need + the clips if required with the particular type of hose that they use.

You can find it on ebay.
Here is an auction number 270659537940 at ebay

This is the stuff I got, its made in Germany and is a Push Lock type hose. Very good stuff

The stuff you want has a fabric cover and does not require clamps, except the rubber stoppers on the back end two nipples.

I bought some for the DaHoooley engine and it was great stuff.

Good price too
