Broken Fuel Rail and Fuel Lines!!!!
I just found that my fuel rail was leaking from the quick disconnect fitting. I tried to take off the quick disconnect fitting and found that the fuel rail had rotted away and broke inside of the quick disconnect. I tried to get the fuel line out but...needless to say it doesn't want to. Now I am stuck with a busted fuel rail and a fuel line with my fuel rail nipple still inside...any ideas. There is enough of the fuel rail nipple left on the fuel rail to reconnect maybe a compression fitting but I really am not sure what to do. Short of buying a new fuel rail (which seems impossible to find) and a new fuel hose that leads to the other quick disconnect fitting on the frame (also impossible to find) what are my other options?? Any help would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance...Oh yeah I pretty much destroyed the quick disconnect fitting in the process...
i would say replace the gas line and the fuel rail, if it is rotted away i think you need a new one. i would try ebay, summit, or just google it, and if all else fails go to a junk yard. also check daviesjeeps.com
There's a store on Ebay jeep rebuilders who I have bought used parts from. Try looking for them. Don't mess around trying to rig the fuel rail because its under pressure and the exhuast manifold is right under it. Not good. Good luck with your part search
go to http://www.findapartnow.com/ . it is only a site with his contact information but i just got my fuel rail last week from him, he said he has 7 in stock when i ordered. I would recommend ordering from him he had a fair price with excellent service and he ships out quick. and btw if you do talk to him say nick that ordered the fuel rail last week recommended him
Rubicon 4" kit (5" of total lift)
5/8 Boomerang Shackles
2" body lift

Ford 8.8 Rear with Rugged Ridge diff. cover
Detroit locker in rear and Lock Right up front
Next time use the proper fuel rail tool to remove the fuel lines from the rail. Lisle makes them, the auto parts store will have them. They are not expensive. If you pick these up you may be able to remove the broken peice of fuel rail from your fuel line.
as for the quick disconnect fitting.....the only place I found it was at the stealer, I think I paid about $15 2 years ago just for the dang disco, which, IMHO is a cheap, thin plastic piece of ****. I feel your pain.
The YJ is no longer my DD. I have sacrificed all future retirement plans for jeep parts. I'm depending on social security!
I have a fuel rail if you still need one as long as it is for a 6 cyl
87 YJ, 4.5 RE lift with monotube RE shocks, 33 LTB's, 258 w/4.0 head, HEI, and Weber carb, Header, Comp 252H cam, Dynomax, cat back and much more.......
If anyone is looking for a fuel rail for a 91-95 2.5L I found this on ebay. I just ordered one, haven't received it yet but I will let all who care know when I get it to be sure it is right. Below is a link.
My fuel rail is in rough shape also and I would like to replace it. I work at a jeep dealership and even for me its hard to get parts for a 94 wrangler. Most stuff is discontinued. I thought about making a rail if I could figure out how to do it.
