Default FUEL LINES

When is it time to think about replacing firesleeve covered firewall forward fuel lines. Do they ever fail internally ?

It depends on what the lines are made from. If Teflon, you're ok. If they are from most other materials you are overdue for changing. First thing is to figure out what they are.

Email me a picture of the lines as well as a picture of the data tag on the lines.

That will help identify what you have and if replacement is warranted.

Have a great week and let us know if you have any questions.
