1997 855R Dreaded Fuel Line to Filter

Post by jonslave » Tue May 12, 2020 6:26 am

Howdy! Long time listener, first time caller. Finally picked up my dream 855R, which are quite rare here in Texas. I broke the quick disconnect from the fuel tank to the filter and just bit the bullet and picked up the pressure pipe:

I did some searching and found that the tank needs to come down as the lines run over the top, my question is what does the the other end connect to? Does it go all the way to the disconnect at the pump or hook up to an intermediate line? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hmm,

Not 100% sure on this supprised no one else has chimed in this can be a complicated process dropping the tank is not easily done most vehicles like the 850 have an access panel in the trunk or cargo area that when removed allows access to the area you need to get at. Google is your friend just start searching i am sure you will find something somewhere where someone had to do this to their vehicle. you also mentioned what does the other end of the of the pressure line hook into? more than likely the top of the tank you wont know until you drop the fuel tank or have it done by someone.

Thank you. Tanks always need to be dropped when they are full, it's a rule.
