Just took my fuel filter off and in front of the clips there was a peace of black plastic tube about 3/8 of a in wide came off with them ,and one of the o rings too.Im sure this is not part of the fuel filter and is part of the fuel lines, can i buy these parts or am I blank out of luck. i don't think the lines will go tight without it .

It's probably similar to the ones at the fuel pump. You might be able to rig something up using the same method I used.

Thanks Mooseman That looks like the easiest way , I was going to put 2 or 3 or 4 o rings on each side not sure if that would work ...Thanks for the link I looked before I posted but didn't seem to poll anything up.Thanks again

I got the one fixed but the other one i had to buy the 90 degree connector like you linked to and cut the line and connected it with a dorman quick connect .download.jpg

I had to cut off the entire fitting with the schrader valve at the filter to change my fuel filter. I replaced it with the straight fittings and those Dorman quick connects. Seems to be holding so far, but I ordered a couple of 90-degree connectors because the straight connectors require longer fuel lines with a couple of curves in them.

Not too sure what I am going to do about a schrader valve if I ever need to measure fuel pressure. I am hoping my fuel pressure tester also has some plain T-fittings I can use!
