    1998 fuel line

    I have just finished installing a LS1 from a 1998 Z28 in my 1996 convertible.

    After driving it for a short distance the plastic line on the fuel pump, inside the tank, ruptured.
    I have since found out that the 98 LS1 doesn't have a return line coming off the fuel rail but rather a "T" in the fuel line just in front of the fuel filter.
    I went to the local dealership and found out that the line and parts are no longer available.

    I need to figure out how and what to use to make the "t" so as to relieve the back pressure in the the fuel line
    Anyone have a recommendation?

    Where you need to make a t is the fuel line plastic or metal?

    Go get some good quality hose clamps and high pressure fuel line. I remember sarge doing something like this on his goat. Autozone should be your friend
