    Whats up all, need some help. I'm currently restoring this 92 AWD and I poured some gas in the tank and it ended up all over floor.

    Got under it and discovered what looks like my return line has rusted out. I find it odd that putting 5 gal in pushed all the way through the return tho.

    Whats a good fitting to cut the rust off and get a flared end back for the rubber hose? Is there a better way to repair?

    Its the center line in pic, its rusted through.

    Better off replacing the whole line it's probably rusted all through. I replaced mine.

    Did you get a line off a junk car or make your own out of SS line?
