Don't make me ask you about something else.
Nylon fuel lines are the best thing since sliced bread. I've been using it for the last 10 years or so and wouldn't consider anything else.
I put the $65 Dorman stainless brake line kit on my suburban. Was easier than even doing nicopp since I had a shop apprentice give me a hand. I May have to get a lower mileage truck soon for a daily, 245k miles and I'm still on original ball joints and tie rod ends...
Only thing better is PTFE braided lines. Race car with no fear of fuel seepage... Too expensive for everyday stuff though.
3am I'm reading this thread and LMAO!
Wow! Brings back memories of when I took the insurance $$ to repair the wifes DD '05 Yukon Denali. Truck appeared to be in great shape so after a door hinge sprung incident (always opens door against the wind-not WITH it) I decided to spend a couple weeks prepping the entire truck for a show finish re-spray after installing new drivers door hinges and straightening the edge of the fender and door.
Well I got around to removing the rear bumper cover and holy $hit!!! The center bumper re-inforcent bar was pretty much rusting to nothing left! The only thing supporting the center of the rear bumper was the damn 1/2" looming for the tail light wiring! WTF?!? What was left fell apart in my lap like crumb cake!
So I had to replace all the rear bumper braces, brackets, center bar support and top support-basically everything between the framerails. So I bought all GM stuff, prepped it all for paint, then sprayed and cleared it all before re-assembling. I just couldnt believe it-truck had no rust anywhere else but there!
New lines from inline tube installed. brakes lines, fuel lines and vent give. plus calipers, wheel cylinders, brake hoses and a new fuel tank. that was an Amazon buy. $200 shipped with sender and pump assembly already installed.
So far so good. I guess not bad for 186000 miles and 24 years. I've seen worse on newer ones. and this truck has a pretty easy life now.
All Dave's fault.
I don't see any 02 sensors on that pile of parts......
No, not one. I did replace it about 5 years ago because the y-pipe was on the floor. I had to fight to get that old bitch O2 out.
So the new fuel pump lasted a grand total of 30 minutes. What brand fuel pump friggin works?
