diesel tank connection

The hose in the pics ( shown in place and slid down) needs replacement due to leaking. Thick hose and must have been put in with the tank, need to cut out as only 2 inch gap between the tank pipe and the fuel inlet pipe. Just wondering about a more flexible hose to replace. Also is there a sealant to use along with clamping. Thanks

Re: diesel tank connection

I'm not sure I totally understand, but if you can find a good quality fuel hose that is not wire wound internally it maybe be easier to get on.

Re: diesel tank connection

Remove the deck fill fitting.

Buy the proper fuel hose and the correct length.

Install hose on bottom of deck fill.

Reinstall deck fill and connect bottom of the hose to tank.

Re: diesel tank connection

Wire in hoses are usually for tighter bends, and to help the hose withstand high temp collapse in cases of wet exhaust failure.
Really not necessary in straight short runs, be sure it's fuel hose though.
You'll pay $12 a ft for it, but it's only 1ft. Right?
