I dont know if anyone still reads this but I had a question. IN the engine compartment where the line was collapsed/kinked as shown above, I removed both lines. The fuel is 1/2 ID but what is the other? What dose it go to? I noticed that most people are actually only replacing the 1/2 and that kinda worries me
same type of connector, same type of hose, right? If so, then one of the lines is the fuel supply line, under pressure [probably 60+ psi], and the other line is just the fuel return line, back to the fuel tank. There's a fuel pressure regulator that keeps the fuel pressure in the rails correct, and releases fuel through the return line as necessary to keep it there.

if diesel fuel isn't leaking in the area, and you aren't spraying a metal fuel line with sparks so it starts glowing, there isn't much to go wrong. a rubber line, put a sheet metal shield in front of it.
