Re: Farymann Diesel A30M Fuel Lines

Thanks for the picture. It helps a lot.

We just replaced 2 old fuel lines on our T27's atomic 4 that looked almost the same as the hose in your picture. Those metal fittings should be threaded so that you can unscrew it with a wrench. You may need to spray it with some WD 40, or a penetrating oil and let it soak in for a while before it will move.

I'm not wild about the idea of re-using such old fittings so I'd recommend replacing the screw on fitting with a hose barb and securing the hoses with hose clamps. Notice that there are no hose clamps to be seen on your fuel line as the hose is held in place by the fitting. Of course, this kind of exposure is worse if you are using gasoline as a fuel as I am.
