Okay so before I get flamed for this the issue isn't for my Tacoma but my dad's 98 Ranger. Either way the repair aspect for it can still apply for the most part. In a nutshell I need to know if it is okay to use this type of Dorman plastic fuel line connector with fuel injection rated fuel hose. I know it says for Nylon fuel lines but can they still be used in a rubber hose with fuel line clamps? Or with they break when clamped on? They have to be fairly durable because the Nylon line is forced on over the barbs.
These are the Dorman connectors I'm talking about
Now for the reason for the repair.
My dad finally decided to replace his fuel filter on his 98 Ford Ranger with over 190,000 miles. So yes original filter even though rec. replacement is 30,000. Well at this time Ford used a shitty type of metal "quick" connect on either side of the filter for replacement. His are rusted to the stub lines on the filter. After 2 hrs of trying to to get them free using the tools and W-40 he cut the fuel lines on either side at the stainless hard lines. So today we went to NAPA and got some Fuel Injection rated fuel line 5/16 and the special clamps. He wants to use the plastic replacement quick connects if possible. I have no clue because this is my first time ever repairing a fuel line. So far all we bought was one of these because it will work too.
Anybody with fuel line repair experience is appreciated. Oh and buying the factory lines is out of the question so don't bother.
