Take what Don said or just use compression fittings with a new section of line. I do think Don mentioned this also. Never use copper as a fuel line.

Either compression fitting or better use flare fittings or quik connects. So many ways to fix in one beer under $20.

And I left out the slip hose over use screw clamps, the $2 way.

But the screw clamps won’t hold the pressure, I found out doing an autopsy in my 1985 Chrysler LeBaron, a 2.2 Turbo , seems when the dude at the dealership saw a loose clamp , he swapped it out for a nice new Tridon clamp , which ripped thru the neoprene hose .
They gave me a great deal for a nice new 86 LeBaron convertible

Which is the reason I suggest flaring then spring clamping.

Perfect , but spring clamps are to weak for the fuel pressure




You need this style of clamp to distribute the pressure around the hose, and no gear clamps to cut into the hose.

like this fuel line

Thanks for that advice, that sounds much more doable, especially this time of year. Then come spring once the weather breaks, I can look at replacing the entire line set.
can you offer suggestions about how to get the plastic retainers apart as well as the flat & elongated plastic housing/supports separated that houses the routing of the fuel lines & brake lines? I only studied these components briefly & it appeared the flat housing components may be held to the underside of the floor pan by bolts screwed down through the floorboard from the interior side. I was able to get it partially unclamped from underneath, but it seemed to also be secured with the aforementioned bolts. Thanks for sharing your experience with this situation. Sincerely, QDMG
