This fits with the web rumor that any leaks in this line will result in a fuel smell. I have no idea how that all works to produce a fuel smell... but... there you have it.

While I was taking things apart, I crossed the Rubicon and replaced the section of fuel line that Off Road Solutions used from the 3.0L fuel filter to the 5VZ engine-end fuel hose. They used a section of line from the donor vehicle, but used adapters to adapt adapters to adapters to get it to work.

One of those flare unions has been problematic in the past so I just grabbed some NAPA hard brake line in 5/16, cut off an end, replaced the connectors, and tried to make a double flare. Took about 4 times but finally made one I trust. Besides, I should carry a double flare tool on the trail. Just too many applications for it in an emergency.

Shoulda been done that way the first time!

I figure part of my difficulty in making the double flare was the tool I got from NAPA... a cheapie. Any advice or guidance here?

Oh no worries, the intent is appreciated!

One question... for reassembly, it just doesn't seem right to me to put the injectors in dry. Seems like a good way to damage an o-ring, etc. One person I talked to suggested a VERY THIN film of petroleum jelly, nothing more. What say you?

Your Friday night date enhancer will work fine on these seals. Next time you're at the auto parts store pick up some Sil Glyde. Some o-rings and seals do not like petroleum based lubricants (AC/ brakes, etc....) Great stuff to have in your sealant misc goo drawer!
You are correct in your caution. While you would probably be fine dry it just takes a nick or the o-ring to roll and your back to where you started from!

Like UB says, bad idea to use Vaseline as it deteriorates typical rubber o-rings. Not all o-rings are made the same, so it does depend on composition but to be safe you do want to use silicone grease. I had some left over grease from my A/C installation that I used, but Super Grease would work, Loctite makes rubber o-ring lube, most all dielectric greases are silicone. It's very common, plumbers use it all the time.

And, yeah, think about it, things safe for that kinda rubber will be safe for fuel injector kinda rubber.

Hmmm, I happen to have some dielectric grease... I think left over from the points-and-condenser days!

K-Y?? SERIOUSLY??!?

Somewhere out there is a German engineer who thought that made perfect sense...

Well, you don't know till you know... got the report from WitchHunter. Turns out BG 44K does a nice job. The injectors weren't bad at all, especially for around 110K miles. Now they are better.

Now put it all together and see what happens...
