Had a real snafu with my trac last night. It's been running rough and sputtering under load. I thought maybe it's time to replace the fuel filter. I've done before so no big deal right? NOT!! I couldn't get that efin connector off the outlet side for nothing. Tried different tools to no end. Ended up cutting the tube on the old filter and got a look at what was wrong inside the disconnect. One of the spring clips was bent and it caused the tool not to work. By the time I got it apart, the whole connector was shot and the fuel line doesn't lock in. :banghead: Can I just buy the short flex fuel line and then cut the metal fuel line and splice it with a flaring tool and fittings? Yesterday I was ready for the nut house after spending a ridiculous amount of time trying to get the damn thing apart. :fire:The only good part is the car lift in my garage. I was able to find a set of clips. They are what's inside the disconnect fitting. So I should be able to replace the clip and save myself from changing the fuel line.
