    I was just looking through some plumbing stuff I have laying around and a 3/8" compression nut on a toilet fill line fits like a glove. Wonder if the 7/8" end will fit on a fuel filter

    Looks DMC was prepared for cheapass owners trying to use plumbing supplies to keep their cars running

    I havenít looked at it, but if it canít be replaced in the stock location, it would seem like it canít be that hard to run a line in another location. Of course, Iím not a ďfactory onlyĒ kind of guy.

    I will probably end up using some type of alternative to the hard line routed slightly differently to the way it is. I'm not concerned with originality here just need a leak free connection.
