Default fuel line repair

any source for repair or replacement on under hood fuel lines going to intake? rubber on my 86 has bulge in rubber hose and local source only does large hydraulic lines. the only used ones I can find on line are as bad or worse than the ones I already have.

I 6 AN adapters and this teflon core braided line. Very easy to work with. http://www.summitracing.com/search?P...20teflon&dds=1

As Jack said, most go the AN adapter/braided hose route, but I just had my originals replicated by Classic Tube in SS and modern rubber fuel injection rated hose. They did a great job. I asked them to pattern them for reproduction. There is a difference in the Feed pipe between coupe and convertible so if yours is a coupe, the pattern that Classic Tube has wouldn't be right for that pipe. The AN adapter/braided line route is definitely cheaper, but if you're looking for stock appearance and fitment, contact Classic Tube and ask for Don Colf.
