Well I was wondering if anyone know the two hoses that connect to the fuel filter I had to cut them and then just put male adapters and clamped the hose to them unfortunatly its leaking a bit which isnt too comfortable feeling driving around with it. Anyone know what kind of shops can put replace ment hoses on or do I have to take the whole long hard pipe off and replace it with the hose or take it off to get it fixxed or any ideas?

I don't know why you had to cut the fuel line, but it's a swage fitting on both ends. you could get it fixed at a fluid/hydraulic shop. Also, I wouldn't drive around with a leaking fuel line without a glovebox full of marshmallows.

well I tried everything possible to try to undo it. but it was almost rusted into one peice.

Do you know if I will have to remove the tubing for them to put new ones on?

Thanks

I believe you may have to take it off. Most swage presses that I've seen are bench mounted. I could be wrong, however, I'm sure others on this forum will chime in.

I decided not to chance becoming a fireball on the highway :)

Just went to the pick-a-parts place and got a whole new line from tank to engine $75 (hope I didnt pay too much)

Disco...there are repair kits made for that. The dealer should have the kit in stock..as should aftermarket supply houses.
You need to ask specifically for the filter/repair kit combo.
The kit consists of two new ends(the parts that screw into the filter) and a new filter, along with a new strap and bolts.
good luck
