Fuel Line/Quick-Connect Fitting Installation

1.Check the contact area (A) of the line (B) for dirt or damage, and clean it if needed.


2.Insert a new retainer (A) into the connector (B) if the retainer is damaged, or after:

  • replacing the fuel feed line.
  • replacing the fuel gauge sending unit.
  • removing the retainer from the line.


3.Before connecting a new fuel tube/quick-connect fitting assembly (A), remove the old retainer (B) from the mating line.


4.Align the quick-connect fittings with the line (A), and align the retainer locking tabs (B) with the connector tabs (C). Then press the quick-connect fittings onto the line until both retainer pawls lock with a clicking sound.

NOTE: If it is hard to connect, put a small amount of new engine oil on the line end.
