  • [Corsa B] Shortening fuel line?

    I've just taken on a C20xe conversion with only a month before Trax.
    Stupid idea, I know.
    Having a few tedious issues at the moment, but the main one being the fuel return pipe.

    The existing pipe from the X12xe is too long so it has kinked in several places.
    I'm going to go to Vauxhall later on in the week and buy a replacement. But is there any way I could chop the new one down to size and connect the two ends together?
    Or is there a simpler way?

      Thanks Craig, just bought myself an 8mm fuel hose valve. 2.99 from my local motor factors.
      Fitted and fired up first time. Chuffin' loud with no exhaust on - made me jump.

          It's going to be a tight schedule.
          The whole interior is stripped out at the moment.
          Gear linkage won't line up. Think it may be something to do with the rubber bush?
          Still got a bit of plumbing to do, exhaust system to fit, camber/alignment adjustment and a fair bit more.

                    Yeah defiantly need a vice to get them
                    In.

                    I can never get them to fit through the mount, without shaving a bit off them. Maybe it's just my mount.
