Default Questions working with fuel pump assembly

When you guys have replaced your fuel pump, using the existing assembly, did you find you needed to replace any of the lines within the assembly? Or is it usually just a plug and play swap? I have the Walbro pump on order, I just want to be sure I have any lines or clamps to do the exchange handy.

Thanks

I just did this. The best way is to cut th ebrass nipple off the old pump and use a short ( like one-two inch) piece of submersible 5/16 fuel line, and two full stainless fuel line clamps. Put the new fuel line over the line with the piece of the brass in there. It will provide a good tiff and strong ribbed piece to realy tighten the hose on there. It also will not crimp the nylon line at all sonce you are not really adding any length just using the cut fitting as a liner. And the submersible stuff is way expensive this way you only use an inch or so. The hose is like 30 bucks a foot otherwise.

Yeah I see what you mean, I took the assembly apart a few hours ago I cut the line to the pump from the Tee.

Picked up some submersible fuel line today from a place that makes up custom hoses for people with boats and hot-rods, seams flexable, its made of some clear material simalar to the factory line, not your standard nylon braided/rubber typical fuel line, hope its the right stuff......

If they say it is submersible sounds OK, never saw any clear before.

Well if it fails all I can do is replace it and warn others.

I've never had a problem with using regular fuel line in there, no need for the expensive stuff. Heck, once I was in a pinch and used a plastic tube from a CamelBak, worked for years until I decided to change it.
