Injector return line hoses

One of mine cracked badly and is dumping fuel. Can you guys recommend what kind of hose or kit to buy for replacement? Some threads mentioned a version that didn't require clamps, which would be nice for installation.

Check Badger Diesel online. Their catalog shows they have the clampless line kits

Dont waste your time with kits or any of that garbage. Go down to your local autoparts store and find fuel vapor line. It's the same size, costs a couple bucks, and you can get plenty extra. I've run mine for a while with no issues and no clamps.

Use SAE J30R14T1. I think the size is either 1/8 maybe 3/16. I know it's not 1/4. And use clamps. They're not hard. Unless you like air intrusion.

A flathead and small pair of needle nose will snug the clamps down with ease. Just dont tear the hose with the flathead. Use the flat to push the opposite side of the clamp while pushing down and holding open with needles.

hope this helps...

FWIW- most kits clampless and clamped work just fine. You can usually get them at the major parts stores for under 10 bucks. From what I've found. Get new clamps, new rear plugs...

The Best return line is the exact same stuff that every German Diesel passenger car has used in 40+ years, cotton braided rubber. No clamps needed.

I believe it's 1/8th. Just take a piece of old hose down there and match it up. Super easy, super cheap. Just dont get the windshield washer hose. It's got a rib down it.

And if you hate dealing with those stupid little clamps, a skinny zip tie works pretty good.
