Broken plastic Vent Line repair


Recommended Posts

A fella with a 91? deville has a broken plastic line to vapor canister.

Whats the best way to repair as it sez flammable, not repairable etc.

Books shows it to be a vapor line and he sez no fuel running out of ti.

I suggested using brass unions and spring clamps to repair.

Thoughts or comments?

Book canister diagram is too large to attach.

Note the broken vent line way down under the PS pulley.

Rubber hose works wonders.

Fuel rated but high pressure is not necessary.

Cut the bad out and splice in a rubber hose

You could also do compression fittings but more difficult and not necessary

Roc.....The guy sez the hose is brittle.

.I suggested working from the canister back to a good not brittle place on the plastic line.

Warming the end with a heat gun and inserting a braSS union and going rubber hose to the

canister.

He says it carries no fuel.

He hasnt came here as I suggested and no more posts on the FB Cadillac Style group from him.

Looks like a easy cobb fix too!

Yup. Go go right to the canister if need be.

If the nipple breaks off the canister then a new canister is needed.
