I've hit a snag. I have guy on another forum making me some fuel lines but he doesn't know what to do about the jumper line. Anyone struggle to renew this before. I guess the 924s was quirky with fuel rail design and this one is weird to him. I would think you'd just carefully cut off the old crimp, apply correct hose and clamps and call it good but what do I know.

I would get a new, OEM one for that line. It already has gone through a recall with Por$che, so it's not something trivial.

If it breaks, you are not going to be happy with your carbeque.

Call the dealer with your VIN...I think there was an actual recall of that line.

As others have mentioned, get a new one. Here's what the recalled hoses look like. If any of you guys have an '87 924S with a hose that ends with .88 get it replaced now!



I hope that helps!

I didn't know new was an option, I will look harder. Why would calling a dealer with a VIN help? The old one is gone (sent off to rebuild guy to use hardware for new, I can probably get the pieces back).
Would a dealer supply a replacement via a VIN?
Thanks for the input.

The dealer can tell you whether or not it was already replaced under the recall.
