LMM fuel return line at the tank
I managed to nick the fuel return line at the tank - long story but unimportant (I waive and accept all readings and accusations of dumb-assery)
Anyway, it's not THAT bad although it doesn't give me warm fuzzies.
Option 1 is try to repair with a barbed fitting. Since this takes 3/8" disconnects I'm ASSuming the ID is 3/8"? Is there any reason to worry about flow restriction caused by the ID of a 3/8" barbed fitting on the return line??
Option 2 is replace, and actually I have one on order just in case. In searching the web I stumbled upon Lines To Go who offers both the supply and return line in braided SS. I'm not particularly concerned with material/construction here but their site provided OEM part numbers, with the return line appearing to be GM 15167372. Can anyone confirm this is actually the right part for an '08 GMT900?
Rock Auto's site suggests the above part # is only good thru '07, but their application guide, while good, is far from perfect. Amazon also claims it won't fit an '08 but we all know their guide is virtually worthless.
If only I'd nicked the supply line which gets removed in the lift pump install!! Doh.
I guess option 3 is just run straight fuel line with a hose clamp at each end, this is basically what the Kennedy setup does for the supply line (with an option of quick connects, included).
