Braided fuel lines weep. 1984 300TD turbo

Hello all.

I have a 84 300tdt and the braided fuel lines going
from the fuel tank to the overflow tank are weeping fuel.
I would like to replace them but don't know
which ones to get.
Fastlane lists a few different size fuel hose.
Which one do I need?

Any help is appreciated.

Louis.

Take a piece of what ever hoses you need replaced to your local parts house. They have good quality fuel hose at a cheap price. If you need a fitting crimped on they probably can do it for you.

The hose he is referring to only lives on wagons. I think it is larger diameter than the injector return hose. Like Kip said, it should be easy to find a suitable replacemeny at an auto parts place.

in my experience any fuel line that you can buy at a generic auto parts place will be lucky to last three years.

i would only buy original benz parts on this one. they usually will last 20 years and more.

The large hose is 7mm ID x 2.5mm wall (it's the same as the fuel supply line between the hard line & the filters under the hood.)
The smaller two hoses are 5mm ID x 2.5mm wall. I think that the part number for it is 1074763126.

I bought a meter of braided fuel return line(between injectors) at the dealer today for a grand total of **$17.50**

Seemed a bit high to me-- not that it fits here, but why the big difference between my dealer and Craigs?!? 4 dollars is 4 dollars-- I could have traveled 35 miles on that money!

Dealer has a bigger family to feed.
His whole family probably drives new benzes
and someone has to pay for that.

Good question, I don't remember the exact amount, but I'm pretty sure it was $13 and change, including tax (less than $14). I don't know why there are differences between dealers, but we have heard similar stories about much more expensive parts too.
