Fuel Line Crossing Exhaust Pipe

Recommended Posts

Hi on my 1980 S1 Eclat is a Fuel line (running outside under the frame) crossing the exhaust pipe with a distance of only 2-4 cm. dies this have any negative effect when the exhaust is hot?

gas bubbles in the line ...

melting hose....

 

 

does the fuel line originally run under the chassis or in the chassis?

Hi,

 

The fuel line sould be securely fixed along the inside of the chassis, what you are describing sounds bad to me!! On my eclat it went through the boot, directly into the chassis, along the inside of the chassis, into the engine bay still along the chassis and to the fuel stopper thingy from there round the engine bay to the carbs.

is the fuel line fixed somehow insede the tunnel to avoid to get in contact with the prop shaft ?

does anybody have pictures.

 

 

i bought the car where the fuel line is crossing the exhaust under the chassis.

 

when the car is hot it sputters and its stopping. maybe because of gas bubbles in the fuel line.

Hello Roman,

 

Please find below address for the photos you want to see

 

The fuel pipe is held in place by chassis clips

Getting the line installed as a service item is not very easy. I have had success fishing a heavy wire (12 ga) through the existing holes inside the frame. Keep the rubber grommets  in place. I bent a ball on the end of the wire and inserted it inside a new metal fuel line. Crimp the end of the line around the wire and with help pull and feed the new line through the frame. Use some lube on the pipe to keep it from hanging up at the grommets.
