    84 T1 Laser XE

    Just picked up a Garnet Red Laser XE 2 owner, with 37k documents miles.

    7/22 I replaced the cracked rubber fuel lines under the hood by the cowl. 2 were 3/8th 1 was 1/4 inch.

    ordered a fuel filter from rockauto found out they were on close out at $1.09 each and got 2 instead

    Car needs a radiator, has a high idle, Vacuum leak or ais not sure yet headliner is sagging. valve cover gasket leak. lots of work to do just to check this car out and make sure its good to drive after so much sitting.

    Fuel pressure lines should be 5/16", return is 1/4".

    Congrats on the score!

    The rubber hoses i pulled off both say " FUEL 3/8' EFM-EFI 18519" There is no Mopar branding of any kind though that i see on any of the hoses.

    7/26 Replaced fuel filter and fuel lines. Took much longer than planned. was happy to see it wasn't an original filter. Cutting rock hard rubber hose with a razor is a pain. Even more so after you sliced your finger instead of the hose. Tissue and electrical tape took care of that, didn't even need super glue, so nothing much to worry about.

    Factory vac line 5/32 and 1/4" can be found here:

    https://www.automationdirect.com/adc...bing_-a-_hoses

    Factory is nylon and will need to be replaced after so many years but it's cheap enough here to do that often if so desired.

    I consider Poly an upgrade as it flows slightly better, will make a tighter radius bend before kinking, and will not harden and crack. The only downside is it has a lower melting point so care must be taken in it's routing. If care is taken they last forever.
