Fuel Line Assembly – ¼” X 5’ w/fittings
Storage and Shelf Life Checks:
Initial Inspection/Disposal Criteria
- Visually inspect for evidence of use i.e., dust, oil, damage, loose or missing parts.
- Return to stock if there is no sign of use or damage and priming bulb can be squeezed easily.
- Refurbish as necessary if the assembly has been used, damaged or is incomplete.
- Dispose of the Fuel Line Assembly if it is not economically repairable.
- Remove dirt and oil using detergent and shop towels as necessary.
- Use pressure washer and degreaser to remove heavy deposits of oil and grease.
- Replace fuel hose if there are cuts, tears, burns or other defects.
- Tighten the quick disconnect fitting if loose.
- Replace cracked, torn or missing O-rings on quick disconnect fitting.
- Replace any ¼” fuel hose that is not gasoline, oil and ozone resistant. *Remove Goodyear INSTA-GRIP hose from service during the refurbishment process.
- Replace priming bulbs that are too stiff and cannot be squeezed easily.
- Replace fuel hose sections if assembly is not a minimum of 54” overall length.
- Replace worn brass swivel fittings that have been rounded over by wrenches.
- If assembly has an in-line fuel filter, replace the filter at each service.
- Secure hose connections using pinch type Ear Clamps (Oetiker® clamps).
C. Test for Performance
- Check function of priming bulb by squeezing; air should escape at hose-end opposite of quick disconnect fitting.
- Pressurize fuel line assembly to 8-10 psi and seal off, ensuring that there is no leak-down in pressure. If pressure will not hold, submerge in water or spray hose with soapy water to indicate source of air leak, repair as necessary and retest.
- Local cache option.
