Diesel fuel lines - universal 3 cyl

All: Just having replaced all filters for the season I found that the fuel line from the pump to the secondary (spin on ) filter is in need of replacement. They all probably should be replaced actually. One end is a brass fitting with the hose crimped on fitting while the others have brass fittings (fine pipe threading?) on both ends. If I remeber the lines can be made by the right shop. Nobody seems to stock generic equivalents so will a good marine engine shop be able to make them? Thanks!

Yes, or any shop that works on either commercial trucks or hydraulics should be able to help as well. Will be less expensive than a marine shop as well.

Take the old lines to them and they should be able to duplicate them. Label them as to location.

When we replaced the supply and return lines on our M25XP, I found that the factory had installed copper from the tank to the filters and a hose was used for the return.
I replaced both with new USCG-approved fuel hose. All fittings are nowadays barbs with clamps.
(The original copper had narrowed up inside over the years like a bad artery.)

No problems since.

I also changed the threaded fittings on the Racor and the tank exits.

Parts should be at any industrial hose supplier that deals in fuel and hydraulic products.
