Default 1992 fuel lines

Is there an aftermarket supplier for the fuel lines running from the tank to the engine? The mechanic said that they have a special flare that can't be reproduced. Thanks for any help.

No aftermarket suppliers that I know of.

mmmm I have never had to replace fuel lines but as Dude says dealer might be the only place ,, but what i am surprised at , is what they said that it is a special flare that cannot be reproduced ,, that i might find hard to believe ,, if someone has access to a flare kit you think they might do any of them,, i doubt that Honda has a patten on the flare ,,
but like i said i never ran across it , so could not tell you for sure 1 way or the other ..

My mechanic told me that the flare was special so I called a local supplier and they said that they don't stock any fuel lines for Hondas but that they have a special flaring tool that is made for this application andwholesales at $199.00. Now I would call that "special" or extra special. [sm=helpout.gif] Oh yes, it needs replaced due to the salt conditions here in Ohio.

The actual fuel feed pipe is about $60, the fuel return pipe around $50.
The other pipe is a vent pipefor tank vaporsaround$50.
You can replace them for less than the cost of the 'special' tool, and then send the bill to the people that are putting salt all over the roads

Use words like wantonly & willfully creating a fire hazard... Good luck!

I'm in Ohio too, & I had to replace those lines (brake lines too) on my '95 Integra.

this may be a dumb question but would it be possible to convert the connections to a rubber hose type?

I suppose but they would have to be braided or something as it is on the pressure side of the fuel pump. It would not be so bad but they installed a plastic shield to protect the junction where they meet and all it does is collect the salt and road muck to make it rust faster.
