Using #6 injector line on cylinder 5?

So, the tapered end of injector line for the 5th cylinder completely sheared off. I was actually surprised at how the car didn't run all that bad for firing on 5 cylinders.

Anyway, I can't get a new one anywhere. In the box of spare parts I got with the car, there's a spare for #6. Since it's longer, can I just bend it to fit? Perhaps at worst on a temporary basis?

On a related note, what would be the best way to bend this? Heat it a little first?

Its not longer, they are all the same length, just bent differently. Take your time and do it gently as little as possible and you can make it work. If you have a handheld brake tubing bender it will be much easier.

Thanks. I only have the one, so maybe I'll take it to a machine shop. I have no benders, but I thought if I heat it a little and bend it around a bigger metal pipe...

You can buy one of the brakeline bender tools at any decent auto parts place for under $10.

Here's one they sell at the Schucks/Checker/Kragen chains of stores http://www.partsamerica.com/ProductDetail.aspx?MfrCode=PBI&MfrPartNumber=648484&CategoryCode=3498

It will do smooth bends in 5 different sizes of tubing - looks like 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", and 5/16". IIRC the injector lines are 5 mm or 6 mm, so the 3/16" or 1/4" should work...
