Deteriorating braided Fuel Hose

Recommended Posts

1.9er

Not been on for a while,but still look in now and then.

Am trying to replace my braided fuel hose which runs to the fuel rail from the fuel line just under the servo,which is located next to the other fuel line which goes to the fuel filter.

Have managed to undo the clip, but can’t get the hose off.Should it not just come off or do I need to use a tool to prise it off? I don’t want to pull at it and accidentally break something else.

And advice appreciated.:D

Typically braided hose is not design for higher pressure, you'd do well to fit the proper fuel line.

 

If you struggle to remove the old line just take a Stanley and cut along its length. You can also unbolt it from the bulkhead.

 

I think Baker BM do the correct shape hoses for the standard 8v, if you're running non standard engine set up then look for decent injection hose which hasn't been sat on a shelf for years :)

try gently twisting it to break the seal then pull off or like DC says just cut it off.

Didn't think there was much pressure at all in the fuel system to be honest.

the braid on high pressure hoses is to prevent them expanding.

for fuel hoses I'd imagine it's mostly for outer protection of the hose itself.

I work with hoses that deliver 4000psi through 1/2" BSP - that's high pressure ;-)

Tried twisting but without any luck,so will cut with Stanley knife later today.Actually it is the hose that goes to the fuel pressure regulator, which has the vacuum hose coming out the other end and right angling into the inlet manifold.

Checked the bakerbm site and they have the 2 hoses,1 that go into the fuel filter and the other out of it, with the picture illustration not showing no hose from the fuel line that I’m trying to replace.

You just need 8mm fuel hose. It is push fit with clips at both ends for the piece you describe.

Cheers Tom....Will nip to Halfords today unless you have any good recommendations for 8mm fuel hoses.

gates Barricade from a reputable retailer, its designed for modern fuels and is thinner wall than cheap fuel hoses  (which in my experience dont last)

Good old “Stan” did the job of slicing the fuel hose and I was able to get it off.

Will take Welshpug’s advice and get some gates barricade fuel hose.

Moss-Europe stock it so will head down to their retail as about just over 30 mins drive from my house.

Gates Barricade isn't metric so it can be difficult to fit.

I had a hard time with my plastic fuel pump cover (309 specific) but it wasn't really the case with the metal pipes (same as 205).

Checked with Moss-Europe and they only have the hose for the carbuerretor and states that it is not for fuel injection 

Any recommended stockists that may have Gibbs Barricade fuel injector 8mm hose?

I buy it from here, in Australia, in various sizes. It’s now about five years old on my 205 and still looking like new.

I buy Cohline hose from Merlin Motorsport. It is lasting OK, been on my car for about 4 years.

Ditto - Cohline 2240 is what I've been using and from the same place, and it seems to last.

 

It's significantly more expensive that the generic apparent R6/R9 rated hoses sold on eBay and by various retailers, but frankly, it's money well spent to avoid a potential inferno in the worse case and the hassle of replacing the hose every year or two in the best case.  Beware of otherwise apparently reputable retailers selling the same generic rubbish as eBay but at a markup.

The only other thing I'd say is to reuse the Peugeot stuff if you at all can. Only replace it with anything else as a last resort. Despite being 30yr old its superior to pretty much anything else you can buy now.

Also checking no specific fuel injection hose or do these cover both carburettor  and fuel injection applications?

I’m assuming this is the one you are referring to Anthony? https://www.merlinmotorsport.co.uk/p/high-spec-rubber-fuel-hose-by-cohline-per-metre-2240-0600

Yes that's the stuff - gone up a fair bit in price since I first used it mind you (something like £9/m a few years ago).

 

It's rated significantly in excess of pressures found in the fuel injection system, so fine for both the feed and return side hoses.
