Has anyone ever had a flexible hose fail on a Caterham (other than damaged one)?
What is the diameter of the fuel hoses and specification for E10
The tricky one on the K series is the hose from the metal pipe in the tunnel to the fuel rail. There is a special connector to the rail, has anyone ever had a success in replacing this section of pipe with one for modern fuels. There is also fuel pump and sender gaskets which are not immune to corrision from bio-ethanol in my experience.
Better still use Oeitker clamps when replacing the swaged ends
Looking to replace my fuel lines and given all the info in this post I do not for see any issues other than:
I take it the Oetiker clamps require a special crimping tool? and what is the size of the clamps required for the fuel hose?
Also looking at the hose from the pump to the filter, is that some sort of twist and turn connection and will new seals etc be required or ca you purchase a new connector?
A long pair of pincers work a treat on the O clips, yes they are sized according to the OD of your hose.
