    x495 diesel fuel line

    Can anyone tell me how the fuel line that goes into the fuel filter inlet supposed to connect? I've had my pop off, it seems to have a groove in it like there's supposed to be a o-ring to snap in. Is this the case? Anyone that knows I would really app. it. Thanks

    I assume you are talking about the metal nipple that the rubber line clamps too? If so, you will have to buy a new filter housing assy to repair it. The fittings are pressed into the housing for a one time use. This is not an unheard of failure but its not that common. Check the housing mount bolt, the mounting bracket and also engine mounts. A lot of shake rattle and roll will cause lil failures like this.

    That's what I was afraid of. I should have took a photo , but I think we're talking about the same thing. Didn't think it could be a cheap fix. Thanks for the info

    I thought I would send a picture of the fuel line. So that way we can make sure we're on the same page. The line on the bottom left is the one coming off like it's snapped in. The rest of them are clapped on. So anyway I thought maybe it would help, thanks a lot for your time.

    Yes that's it. Is or can you buy the elbow and replace it or have to buy the whole filter assembly because of the way it's made? Thanks

    Is it worth a try to pull out the fitting, clean it well and JB Weld it? Just a thought.

    Would it be worth getting glue inside your injection pump, injectors or other parts of the fuel system? It could end up costing you way more than the filter assembly.

    The other possibility is that line coming unhooked while using the tractor. Getting it stuck in a remote part of your property could be the least of your worries. Having the thing dump fuel all over the place or catching fire will run the bill up really quick. Then if some government agency gets involved with the spill you better have good homeowners insurance. However they will probably deny the claim after finding out about the fuel line glueing.

    Best of luck
