Fuel pipes across tank needed (corroded = MOT fail)

Post by soundrediscover » Sat Nov 23, 2019 12:08 pm

As with my post in the technical area......
The MOT failure is because they leak - my spares have also rotted through.
It is another case of either finding a used set or looking at how to remanufacture.
Any ideas?
Many thanks
Rock On!

Hi had the same problem just make them out of copper pipe like I did I think there is two sizes involved 8mm and 10mm but to be safe just measure the outside diameter of the old pipe.

Will rubber pipes not do the job, temporarily at least?

You could try rubber as an alternative, I remember in the early noughties I went to a rover dealer when you could still get the pipes new they wanted £88 plus vat back then?
