I HATE QUICK CON. FUEL FITTINS!

dang fuel line quick connects are a major pita! first i couldnt get the [email protected] things apart without breaking 3 of the special tools and now my blue hose one it being a b!tch at staying on. blew off the very second my truck first fired up with the new motor, then the dang thing has came off 2 times while driving down the road! i know it was locked in cuz i felt it "pop" when i put it in and even tried pulling it back out and it wouldnt come. now i got it in and zip tied the fuel line solid to the fram rail so it can vibrate around lol.

not b!tching or nothing cuz its way easy to fix, jsut sharing my experience with y'all

on a side note i sure do love having my truck back!

When mine fail, I will just go to hose and double clamps.

Only on the suction side (pre-pump). They actually do a really good job on the pressure side.

Re: I HATE QUICK CON. FUEL FITTINS!

I stumbled across a billet alum. fuel coupler tool at a swap meet, waaaaaaaaay better than the cheap NAPA tool. I stuck it in there and before I could think what to do next the fitting fell off. When you monkey with the tools you ruin the tabs inside. I wish I knew a place to get more of these things, but the guy only had 5/16 and not 3/8 and I have no way to reach him now. Tool was $2.50.

Re: I HATE QUICK CON. FUEL FITTINS!

A set off the mac truck both alum. and a set of nylon. Yes the fingers get jacked inside sometimes from build up sometimes from improper use.
I spray them with wd 40,makes them alittle easier to get apart.
