Fuel line for 2007 Georgetown

Just a word of warning. My fuel line sprung a leak. Ford parts had 2 in stock and had to be shipped ground (took 5 days) and arrived damaged. The last one in the US is now on its way to the Ford dealership. Will be another 5 days before it arrives. If it is damaged, I don't know what I am going to do as it is the last one in the US. Any suggestions?

What part of the fuel line you replacing.
The whole thing from tank to engine or just a short section?

Depending on what Ford is charging for the part I'm sure you can get someone to build you one on site as this can be done by a good shop.

Was the line hit by a rock or rusted out?

It is the entire line. I just found a place - inlinetube who can duplicate any line. The locals wouldn't touch it since it is a high pressure fuel line. They didn't want the liability. Hydraulic, no problem but not fuel.

It is leaking where the fitting attaches to the tube.

The second line did come in damaged so there are no lines left in the US. I took my good fitting from the rv and the new line with the smashed fitting to a guy who clamped the old fitting to the new line using some kind of airplane fuel line clamps. FORD was absolutely no help and they wanted to charge me full price for their defective part!

WOW!
Can not imagine what you have been going thru.
Glad to hear you did find someone who knew what they were doing.
I figure airplane fuel lines are better than auto and should be very reliable.

Good luck and happy 4th.
