Today after a quick trip the Princess Auto, about 20 bucks and 10 minutes of work, I have two new virtually indestructible fuel rails to replace the original plastic parts.
To assemble the replacements, I used a couple of anodized aluminium compressed air manifolds, four brass barbed fittings and a plug. I may eventually add a pressure gauge to show fuel pressure.
With the addition of these new parts, there is now no part of the fuel system, with the exception of the tank and filler, that I have not replaced. I'm hoping this will banish Hephaestus.
