#1 Fuel line issue

Post by MLBS3V12 » Sat Oct 07, 2017 6:37 am

I ve 2 problems on the right side fuel rail.
One is to find a nut to maintain the fuel line

The second one is to have the right size nut to fix the last tube on the fuel rail under the car.

I ve got a donor S3 for my restoration and it seems that the size of this parts were not the same. Now I ve sold the rest of the donor car. :-)

I clearly dont where I can find parts.
Thank you for your help.

Hi there,

The fisrt nut which is pressing the olive on the union has been found at automec, the link is here :
https://www.automec.co.uk/products/bras ... -5-16-pipe
Thank you Mgcjag for this link supplied.

Clearly, the 9/16'' with 24 threads is not easy to find. After several contact through France, UK and US, I finally founf what I was looking for.
For the one which is maintaining the union on the crossmember underneath the car, it has been harder.
I finally found someone very very helpfull!
Dean Kothmann from fitting connection does have a complete bulkhead union with the good dimentions.
He decided to send my free of charge the nut I was lookin for. Once again thak you Dean!

I've received by regular mail the nut:

I'm now able to close the fuel line and go ahead on this topic.
I still dont understand why the current E Type parts suppliers do not have the underneath car fuel lines available. Am I the only one to face problem to get this kind of part ?

Cheers
Le chemin sera long!...
