    Fuel Line Busted! Can't find new replacement...

    Help!

    I busted the L-shaped fuel line that connects the fuel filter to a T-shaped adapter! No one, including the dealership apparently, has a way to get this part? I tied a generic fuel line (had to buy a pipe bending tool too) but it doesn't seal like the originl so I ended up having fuel spray everywhere. Not fun, and definitely not safe.

    Are there any aftermarket solutions or products?

    I am calling a few junk yards tomorrow, but I really don't want to go search through one.

    It is a 1999 TA, V8...

    Help!

    Junkyard is a good idea, if you can find one. Otherwise you'll have to make one. The fuel filter side is a special flare. I'm not sure what the T-block flare is. Either way, the only tool I know of that makes the GM fuel line flare is this one. Its expensive so you may wanna call some nearby shops/dealers to see if they have this tool and can make you a line. You'll also need your old Oring if its still good.
    Here's a pic:

    Its called Mastercool Automotive Hydraulic Flaring Tool Kit

    Whew!

    I was able to fix this finally. Dorman makes a small L-shaped fuel line repair piece ($12 each though) so I had to buy two of these, cut one, and then connect it with rubber fuel line and clamped them down.

    Talk about worst install/repair ever. Gas spraying out of the bottom of my car (while it is in my garage) was definitely a frightening experience. :|

    That flare tool kit would have made this easy though
