As I am, right now. I popped a small hole in the send line back near the gas tank. It looks like the line had been rubbing on the tank edge, combined with rust, that presents a hole. But there is a nice clean section that I could cut into, and replace about 3 feet, ending in the proportioning valve. I would cut and flare the lines, and use one fitting to connect and then the male end into the proportioning valve. I believe it will hold until I can get them replaced. I do baby my MJ.
