I picked up a pristine 74 REPU for $1100. 120k, only 15k since new factory engine.
Only problem: gas hose is cracked right at the carb banjo fitting. So I pulled it off the nipple and cutoff 1/2 inch and now I'm trying to get it back on the nipple. Maybe I'll have to replace the whole hose, which is 36" long with a fitting down low on the passenger side.
Is that fuel hose easily available? Is there a common American/japanese part from another car? How can I get that %^$^% hose on over the nipple?
Yep, I got 4 feet of 5/16 (8mm) gas hose to use. Only problem is that connector down low on the end opposite the carb. Don't know if it's molded on, or what. Too dark and rainy when we worked on it. So I'm gonna try splicing in a short piece of 5/16 with a gas union.
