All registered today. Got home feeling pretty pleased with myself. But what's that smell? Fuel? Open the lid and first thing I see is a weeping fuel return line. Dabbed it with a cloth and it just fell apart.
Thought I would cut a section out and nick down to Autobahn and grab some.
When I cut through it I discovered that there was a plastic tube within the the rubber Piter tube. And too late I'd cut through.
Later, about 4:55pm. I learned this used to be an expensive part, which, you guessed it, has gotten more expensive.
How much more I will find out tomorrow.
Does anyone have one they'd like to be rid of by any chance?
All of my 960's have all had a normal rubber hose for return line
connects at the firewall to the rail
the firewall to the tank is nearly all metal
Hmm, I thought it was strange as it woud restrict the flow!
Here you go!
that looks like the supply not the return
edit... just checked against my spare
That's the supply....
Really. I thought the supply went through the regulator diaphram thingy?
This solid line (green) comes up the firewall from underneath car, has right angled connector, with the rubber line connected, which then goes directly into the rail.
23 = Supply
18 = return
Goodo. So is it normal for it to have the plasitic inner tube? This seems weird.
The filter to rail line on a 940 is eactly the same
IIRC its something metric so if you go into a parker or pirtec store they can easily find you some fittings to replace it
See the tentacle wagon thread for some idea's
I spoke to Mason's Prestige Volvo, and they said Volvo lists standard High Pressure reinforced fuel line & hose clamps as a replacement, and to delete the plastic inner hose all together.
Dodgy as ****
I would never do that ever....
There is no proper barb on the fittings to clamp the hose too...
Thats what I said. Relying on hose clamp?
So how is the plastic attached to the fitting?
Fitting is a crush type fitting
What you can do is take the fitting that fits into the rail,
remove the o-ring
then you can take it, have the crush portion cut off, and have it tig welded to a 6AN Male fitting
(Estimate on $50)
You can then easily redo a fair amount of crap in the system from the pump onwards :-)
Just take it to Pirtek and come home with a replacement?
Thats what I'm thinking. Might need to do a temporary though.
