Fuel line retro fit

I have a 93 Bronco that has a frame mounted fuel filter that takes specialty tools to remove. The tool is the same type that is used to remove the fuel lines from the gas tank. My old 89 Bronco used disconnects that utilized a plastic clip that could be removed with a screwdriver.

My question is, can I retro fit my 93 Bronco with 89 Bronco fuel lines (and the filter worm style clamp) with minimum difficulty?

Thanks for any and all help.

Brian

Anything is possible,but I don't think its worth the effort when you can get the fuel line release tool fairly cheap.Besides its a real pain to splice the lines.

I have the correct tools to remove the filters, but they're not releasing the fittings. And I want to replace the entire fuel line from tank to engine. The factory set up is just too much of a hassle to work with in a reasonable amount of time.

In a word, NO. There is too mug pressure in the system in a 93 from the tank all the way to the rail. The 89 didn't have the full fuel pressure until fuel moved through the frame-mounted high pressure fuel pump. The 93 has the full 40 psi coming from the pump in the tank. The fittings that are on the 93 are necessary with that kind of pressure. If you try to use anything else you will burst connection point and have raw fuel pumping all over the road and undercarriage. There is a good reason it's so difficult to open the fittings. Spray them with penetrating oil an hour before you try removing them.

The easiest way I found to remove the fuel lines when they stuck is spray alittle brake cleaner in to flush out any sand/dirt around the line

I agree... The older system used a few psi 3 or 4. The new system uses at least 10 times that. The rubber hoses are just not rated that high. I think it would work for a while. How long till a line blows off???

BTW you should have the plastic clips. You pry them out with a screwdriver, slide off the line, reinsert the clips(or new ones), then they just snap on. Unless you have the metal ones. Those seem to give me more trouble. More common on the chevys.
